San Luis Obispo, CA (1989)
I always knew I was "different" than other little boys. I loved to put on makeup and play dress up.
And I wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer or Wonder Woman when I grew up.
I don't do well with labels, but I guess if I had to pigeonhole myself,
I would identify as gender queer.
Because when I read the definition of gender queer for the first time, it sounded just like me.
I've been married to a woman, I've procreated, and I've had sex with men and women. I'm capable of having crushes on either, but one thing I've never felt,
is confusion. I always knew just who I was. And that was just - me.
If you're young and queer, be proud.
You will always be cooler than everyone else.
