I know moving won't magically make my life better, but I guess at this point, I don't see the harm in believing that it will.
New Piece on Medium: Beauty Isn’t Binary
I wanted to write this not only as a moment of catharsis for myself, but also because I know several non-binary folx out there might feel the same way.
