Zane, age 9
Redmond, Washington (1999)
The story behind this pic goes a little deeper than you'd expect. It's evidence of my mother's failed attempt to get me to act more feminine. Back then, I was a confused 9-year old little girl, who wanted to be a boy who liked boys.
I also knew that he'd never love me back until I became a boy.
Oh, the logic of a 9-year old...
I wasn't your average trans kid.
Being a tomboy had its moments, but never really appealed to me. I wanted to be a boy, but I still wanted to be able to play with my Barbies and sing and dance.
Today, I'm a not-so-typical
21-year old gay man, with his black belt in taekwondo, a love for Star Trek, and a passion for dance.
Looks like nothing much has changed.
