Your Personal or Professional Goals:
My personal goal is simple: To have as many fulfilling relationships as possible in all aspects of my life. Platonic friends, sexual partners, family members, and everyone else. Additionally, I would not like to fear commitment with my romantic partners — something that I’ve been working on improving the past few years. Professionally, I would like to get large enough as an LGBTQ writer, that I can create a platform for more marginalized groups, to hear their voices.
What’s your offering to the world:
I try to offer queer folks, who feel alone, a sense of community. To let them know that they are not alone in what they’re going through. That what they think and say matter. I try to offer bisexual and queer visibility in the media.
Who/What Inspires You:
I’m inspired by people who share their most authentic selfs. Folks who feel comfortable oversharing about their own personal experiences to help others.
To help create a queer community that’s inclusive of all LGBTQ+ individuals, regardless of race, socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, or country of origin.
