Anonymous said: I am sorry if I come off as extremely ignorant and I DEFINITELY don´t want to offend anyone...but what is "trans queer lesbian"? I understand who is a trans person, I understand who is a lesbian, I don´t really understand who is a queer person (if you could explain to me also), and those three together I understand even less. I am pro all sexualities, sexes, genders, gender identities, and would like to get more educated.

Well, I’m trans, meaning, in my case, that I was assigned male at birth but I identify as a woman, I’m a lesbian, meaning that I’m a woman who is attracted to other women, and I’m queer, meaning that my gender and sexuality are in opposition to the ones that are supported as “normal” by society.

Like I said, queer is an umbrella term that includes people who’s gender or sexuality is in opposition to the “norm,” (so that could be non-binary people, lesbians, bisexuals, genderfluid people and a bunch of others) but since it also has a history as a slur, there are people who don’t use that identity. Also, I like to use it because I think it helps to show that my queerness is tied into my politics. But yeah, so I’m a trans (woman who was assigned male at birth) queer (political being with gender and sexuality that challenge the patriarchy, western gender binary and other similar institutions) lesbian (woman who is attracted to other lesbians).

Does that make sense?

[edited to add] These are just my personal definitions, and explain why I identify the way I do and don’t necessarily describe anyone else’s identities.

Anonymous said: Hey Mey you're an inspiration to me. I'm desperately needing help/advice on coming out as a queer trans lesbian. Thanks Edwina

Thanks. Do you have any specific questions?

Other than that, without knowing any details, I would suggest finding a few friends who you are more sure will be supportive and coming out to them first. It’s always good to have someone in your corner when you have to do something hard like that.

I’ll have some more advice coming soon, until then, i hope this helps.
