“I have struggled most of my life to find my voice, my identity, my power. I grew up being told who I was supposed to be, and the older I got, the more I realized I could not be myself. I shrunk myself to fit other people's ideas and expectations of me. I felt powerless.
Now I know I am a fat, queer, non-binary trans person. Words that were once used to hurt me I say with pride. I know who I am. I know my beauty. My intelligence. My sensuality. Wearing this harness is me claiming and celebrating my queerness. My transness. My fatness. My power. And now, you will submit to me.”
