I think, sexuality wise, I’ve always known. I think it was more I got quite quiet about it when I started realising that not everybody feels like that and especially because I’m not originally from Brighton it was viewed by some people as a bad thing. So it was there, but I don’t think I really talked about it until I was twelve. Then I think I was, ‘Oh well I’m bi’ and it’s only been the last few years when I think it’s more than that. I think bisexual doesn’t necessarily do it justice.
Gender wise, I think the problem with trying to describe my gender is everything falls into society-defined categories. So I don’t necessarily fit society’s idea of what a woman is, but then that’s just … who is to say that that particular thing is the right way to be a woman?
I think everything that I’ve questioned about my identity has been because of society’s idea of what a woman is and I don’t fit that. I think mainly because I’m quite happy with my body. It’s more of a kind of mental thing I guess, a soul thing. It’s not that I want to change anything about me physically to fit into anything else, it’s just I don’t fit comfortably in a box.
