As many of you know all through my 20s I did all sorts of weird queer shit! I played with gender and bent every line I could, and I don’t regret a moment of it. Many did not understand it, how could they? I didn’t understand myself and that’s how I was learning to. I have been mocked and shut out by my own community and also praised and lifted up for all of the crazy glittery messy queer shit I’ve done. Though on the outside it seems I’ve calmed down, on the inside I’m still a crazy naked long haired glittery hippie.

I’m just doing different things in my life and wearing different costumes to express who I am at the moment. Never really thought twice about “making a statement” or “inspiring others” I was just doing and creating and expressing myself what and how ever the fuck I wanted regardless of how people perceived me. I suppose my point is, this pride month, try and remember, that is what pride is all about. Being proud of who you are no matter what that means. So if your are masc, femme, fat, skinny, muscular, gay, bi, trans, what ever color you are what ever background you are just celebrate it and surround yourself with people who see how amazing you are and celebrate that too.
Not just this month but in your life. Let go of toxic relationship who make you doubt yourself, your value, your talent, your vision. Pride is not just a reminder of the struggles we have faced through mistreatment, abuse, and persecution, one month out of the year and at a couple of parades, PRIDE is a way of life! It’s how we choose to see and celebrate ourselves and our brothers and sisters. No me puedes asustar tengo una hermana que esta loca tiene problemas de humor. So this month and every other month out of the year, be that fabulous, queer, amazing, talented, loving, kind, wonderful, PROUD, person you are.
