Having grown up in East Texas, I wasn’t offered many examples of what authentic queer culture could look like. The examples shown through the media felt like caricatures of flamboyance that I felt little, if any, relation to. It wasn’t until I left the South and discovered that queer people exist within a vast range of personalities that I truly become comfortable with my own sense of self. That discovery is what inspired my capstone project at Jefferson University. I wanted to create a collection of experience and opinion that told the full story of what a queer identity can look like, so that other kids who grew up similarly to me could see themselves represented in the larger cultural conversation.
