Great, long read!

“This the story of how I started buying men’s pants again (they are cheaper and last longer) while learning to embrace my natural hair. It’s a story of realizing that I don’t have to dress in a way that makes it easy for ignorant people to categorize me. It’s a story of learning how to communicate that people’s judgments on my gender and sexuality are unwanted.

It’s a story about my new suit of armor.”
