Thesis: Shifting Sense of Self in Hyper-gender Reality

... and they held my hands, kissed them, to show me just that... that they saw me as me

In conversations about friendship, solidarity, queerness, struggles, strategies and love, I gather material for a common thread. I let them surround me with their ideas, thoughts in penetrable textiles. I collect their listening faces, serious faces, ecstatic faces. I patch and combine their words into one common line of thought, one channel to be heard. This is a love letter and an ode to people I admire most, for their honesty, clarity, perseverance and for putting their trust in me.
