This blog is a project meant to show the variances in gender expression within different gender identities and sexual/romantic orientations. I would also like to show how other aspects of identity such as ability, race, ethnicity, body type, etc. impact or are irrelevant to an individual’s gender expression.
To do this I ask that people submit a picture of themselves that they think best represents their gender expression. and then give a statement of any length describing their own gender expression in relation to different aspects of their identity- whether it differs or influences it.
I will make a simple drawing the photos and post them with the original statements copied below
I hope this project can help us break away from stereotypes surrounding gender so less people will be misgendered and more people will be presented the opportunity to explore their gender and how it is presented!
I will delete this post later, but this is a project I’m doing for a class and I have a very limited amount of time I need to do this in and I need some submissions (especially from people of color), so I’d love it if any of you could submit!
