Queering

Hi all, the following post is a personal narrative that focuses on what queer has meant to me in my life.

The following text is multigenre. Its poetry, biography and philosophy among other things. The text is a point, a moment upon which I am freezing my life and to say "here I am, I have found myself" and by doing so lose myself.

When Moses asked Jehovah what His name was, Jehovah responded," "I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' "

"I'm a bitch I'm a lover
I'm a child I'm a mother
I'm a sinner I'm a sant
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know, you wouldn't want it any other way"
