A questioning person is exploring their gender or sexual identity.
"I’m femme with she/her pronouns but I have had moments throughout my life where I wondered if that was really who I am.
Sometimes I have the urge to begin presenting myself as masculine. Sometimes I wonder if it’s okay to be straight but be masculine presenting and be okay with my birth assigned gender. Or if I’ve been more than one gender this whole time.
What I appreciate about the lgbtq+ community is that there even is a “questioning” identity. To me, it means that it’s okay to not know and not be decided on what or who I may be."
Over the pandemic, we started Project Beanie, a collection of 20+ beanies representing LGBTQIA+ identities. These beanies are modelled by our followers, and highlight the voices in our family. We hope you resonate with their stories!
