  • "I crave nature. When I’m in it, I love it. But I’m not a good camper. I’m good for the day."
  • " Yeah it’s the same old story of labels being important in terms of fighting for legal rights, but being so inadequate in terms of expressing nuances of existing. And as soon as you choose a label it ends up inflating that part of your identity above other parts that are just as important."
  • "Exercise is key for me to just stay connected to the ol’ bode. It’s tough. Even though we know how to feel better. We know all these things. We just don’t do them. Everyone knows if they were on their phone less they’d be happier and more fulfilled. But it’s hard. Everything is designed to keep us distracted."
  • "It’s so frustrating that so much of identity is about comparison. I just feel like myself. I don’t even feel non-binary. I just wake up, have a coffee and go to work."
  • "And being so confused, because I don’t feel like I want to go to the men’s changing room, and I don’t feel like I’m safe in the girl’s changing room."
  • "All the conversation is focused around pronouns and things like that, and I’m like, however you read me is fine. I know how I read myself."
  • " I’d love for us to reach a point where gender didn’t have to be the defining aspect of our identity, but we’re far from that."
  • "Getting a laugh out of someone is such a empowering feeling."
