“The disassociation from my body was exacerbated by never being taught to communicate. I was taught, ‘Okay you’re a woman, men are very bad and scary, and they will kill you, but you need to do whatever they say, because that’s a God given law. Now you need to go marry one and have his babies.’ Orgasms? Not for you.
I needed medication, I needed exercise, I needed to be on top of my eating, I needed to build some routine in my life. Because as a queer creative, routine isn’t really a thing that I know well. Me and her aren’t on speaking terms. And from doing most things for myself, I began writing. I discovered a new found independence, creating new worlds and voices. I found myself in a space where I was allowed to be angry, I was allowed to be sad. I would like to build within the community, for the community, and by extension, teach the world, and radically normalise our existence through creativity.”
