I don’t talk about myself much publicly for a number of reasons. Mostly I think people aren’t interested and I really don’t want to bog them down with the things I deal with on a daily basis unless it affects my work.
I like to keep myself distant, I guess, but I do have issues and things that are important to me. A lot of time I try to stay out of the conversations though because… honestly, I don’t really feel like I belong a lot of the time.
But, this year I decided I wanted to do something for Pride Month, to kind of establish myself and throw myself out there as a kind of declaration. Not really to anyone in particular, more to myself, I think. I mean, it’s not really a secret to anyone who knows me, but I think by putting it out front and center, I’d feel better about it. So I wanted to do something simple, not too complicated and not too overworked.
To be honest, I’ve always kind of rolled my eyes at the flags because of how overused they are, but I do like the trans flag a lot for its simplicity and the color scheme. It appeals to me and it’s something that I relate to, despite how much I’d not wanted to years ago. It’s not the only flag/label that applies to me, yeah, but it’s the one I think I get stuck on the hardest, and going forward I want to try and be proud of myself for who I am.
