I'm a cis-female in my daily life and I'm attracted to the female body and prefer sex with a female body, however, I'm a performer and, sometimes, a drag king. I frequently do shows where I begin the evening in drag, appearing as a male. I do a very convincing illusion with fake facial hair and makeup to alter the appearance of my face, bind my breasts to create the illusion of a male chest in such a way that my shirt can be open and I paint my abs and pecs to appear more masculine. I perform in this way and then I change my clothes and take off my makeup and hair and perform in the same show as a female. I have different characters and names for these stage-personas. This is my personal "fuck you" to the gender binary. I can show you a boy and then a girl in the space of less than a half an hour, convincingly and well. Gender is what I choose to show you; it's an image and I can make you see whatever I want. It is not my biology or my genitals. And gender sure as fuck doesn't dictate what I can do, how I have to dress, how I have to do my hair, how I live my life, or who I sleep with or love.
