As a queer person, I have fought for myself all of my life. I have been told for too long who or how I “should” be. In resistance I’m very much who I am and commit to being myself.

However, I am still struggling with internalized homophobia and the tropes of ‘should.’ When I meet new people I find myself checking my behavior and curbing my attitude & mannerisms to fit-in for fear of being confronted w/ what ‘should’ once again.
