To illustrate what kind of awkward, wannabe artsy goth kid I was at this stage of my life, I've created a triptych of me rocking my favorite outfit and flanked by two truly remarkable pieces of artwork by yours truly. Yes, that is a headband covered in skulls that I bought at Walgreens. Yes, that is the sock I wore on my wrist to cover my self-harm marks. Putting this together was a humbling experience.
I'm a queer writer, gender studier, gamer, and all-around goober. I have a YouTube channel where I make a fool of myself playing games, and a blog where I make a fool of myself writing about my feelings. I really like unicorns. Follow me on Twitter: @PhantasmaJones
