Q: What is your name and pronouns?

A: My name is Rami and I use they/them pronouns. I’m 18 years old.

Q: What does your liberated world look like?

A: I am a Capricorn so it’s hard for me to think that broadly sometimes, but I think it means that everyone is thriving and has space and support to grow, with a new system of everything that values us instead of oppression.

Q: What is it like being Trans in the Bay Area?

A: I get strange stares and people start intrusive conversations with me and won’t respect my pronouns or gender but that’s a given since people understand what it means to be gay more than trans and especially non binary, but I’m grateful that there is such a large trans community.

Q: How would you describe your gender identity or expression?

A: I am non-binary because i don’t have a better word. To be honest, i don’t even really like the label but it’s hard to figure out label. I kinda dress like whatever, or to just look hella cute.

Q: What does visibility mean to you?

A: Literally people seeing me transgender and gender non confirming and supporting trans and queer babies through this process.
