Don't show drag queens to the children!

That's not the world that we are buildin'.

I'll dress up a lil',

I'm "straight as a fid'l,"

So I can whip bills and still run.

About the Creator


I am a non-binary, trans-masc writer. I work to dismantle internalized structures of oppression, such as the gender binary, class, and race. My writing is personal but anecdotally points to a larger political picture of systemic injustice.
