This is a picture of me in my full flamboyance. At the time i might not have known my personality, sexuality or much about my surroundings. But i really felt comfortable acting feminine and being full of colour.
Thankfully my sister saw this interest and now I have numerous toddler photographs wearing frilly outfits, adorned with bags, necklaces, sunglasses and tiaras.
This joy and fun did not mirror in my school life, where everyone was uniformed; uniformed in clothing, uniformed in language and uniformed in behaviour.
