“My name is Jordan Gregor and I am a data analyst. I attended Edinboro University, where I met Jenn and where I studied Math and Physics.
I decided to participate in Jenn's project because I love the idea of empowering myself in a way that society may see me as more than sexual. While my harness did make me feel attractive in my own skin, it felt more like armor to me. I've spent over four years of my life trying to make my way in a straight-male dominated space as a lesbian. I've been talked over, shushed, and I've frequently been questioned on my knowledge simply because I don't have a penis. Putting on my harness felt like a way to say, "Yes, I'm a lesbian. Yes, I deserve to be here. and Yes, I know what I'm talking about." I do not fall into the box that society has tried to place me in and I do not care. I will not hide who I am or my accomplishments and I will be acknowledged.”
