We are all forms of identity intersection in body, mind and spirit
We resist, refuse and reject unkind, unnecessary, and unnatural attempts to control or conform our inherent sense of selfhood
the gleams in the eyes of the parents to the legends after we die, we
call for an openness and loving curiosity about gender, sex, ability,
spirituality, and all aspects of unique, individual selfhood
Respect the unknown without labeling it and honor that which has been self-identified.
