There is more to identity than the names and labels society chooses for us. My journey of self-discovery began only after I recognized that I was trans non-binary. Once I’d opened my mind to the possibilities of my being, I could no longer take refuge in traditional gender roles. 

The only true names are those that originate inside of us, those born from within ourselves. My name comes from within me, it flows forth with energy both masculine and feminine, constrained by neither and proud of both. I am both Yin and Yang. Sun and Moon. A woman with a moustache, a man with a vulva.
