I've always been a tomboy. From elementary school on, any time I picked my own clothes they were always oversized and typically from the boys department. At some point during college I realized my attraction to women and identified as a lesbian until recently. The label never quite felt right, but I couldn't put my finger on why that was. Denial was easier than working through it. I did not have many resources and wasn't comfortable discussing my dysphoria. As I entered adulthood, I began to present myself in a very androgynous way. This helped ease the dysphoria a bit, but only temporarily.

Code: RED 5th Anniversary Gala.
Since 2013, Philadelphia's best donate their time and talent to raise money for local HIV/AIDS organizations - it is also a chance to raise awareness about the prevention, treatment and testing of HIV infection. Co-producers Mikel Pop and Brandon Robert Barlieb use this night as a platform to bring the community together for a night of entertainment, and to also shatter the stigma surrounding the virus and show that there is life after diagnosis.

I think it was 5 or so, and knowing I wasn't a 'girl' in the way that the other girls in kindergarten were. I didn't know what the alternative was though, so I just went along with it. I think it probably wasn't until middle school that I was even introduced to the possibility of trans and non-binary identities, but I didn't openly identify as nb until sophomore year of college.
