Editing is complete and these are my favorites of the ones that Sarah Deragon of The Identity Project.
It was such an incredible experience working with Sarah and getting an opportunity to actually help her with release forms throughout the day. Not only did I get a chance to hear of all the magic and wonder in the Bay Area but I got to meet such amazing people!
This was the first time any photos of me have been taken by someone else since I’ve started my journey with testosterone. Although some aim to be seen as strictly male I have always identified somewhere in the middle of the spectrum leaning towards the trans-masculine side. That being said this is the first time I’ve ever seen photos of myself and felt that they accurately represented a lack of binary gender that I feel inside. I actually love the way I look (ignoring all the little things like that one hair being out of place or my finger doing a weird thing). And on top of that I felt a validation and a sense of community as I was interacting with Sarah and the people she was photographing throughout the day. For once, I didn’t feel weird admitting that I was on testosterone but didn’t want to identify as male.
This, in part has something to do with the amazing wisdom Sarah bestowed upon me as we spent time together throughout the day! It’s not every day you get to spend some quality time with someone whose main goal is to showcase the entire gender spectrum and how people self-identify.
Seeing this project in action for one day and being a part of it myself has only reinforced my belief that you have to love yourself and be exactly who you are. Don’t ever let anyone take that away from you because as The Identity Project so clearly shows, everyone is beautiful in their own way.
Some femmes are dominant and some butches are submissive. Some men have vaginas and some women have penises. Sometimes what you call a clit is called a dick by it’s owner, and sometimes a dick is really a clit. Some straight men want to be penetrated and some straight women want to do it. Sometimes people aren’t men or women at all and sometimes genitals aren’t a black and white issue. Sometimes people are different to you, and always, we need to accept this.
