YOUR STYLE IN TWO WORDS: Glamour butch

YOUR HISTORY WITH/RELATIONSHIP WITH “BUTCH”: I have been identified as baby butch, a long-haired butch, a straight-up butch… and have adopted them myself at times when I felt I needed to choose a label (often for the benefit of others). However, I just identify as “myself” which presents as an androgynous, masculinely-styled individual. As a kid, my parents were very supportive of my style and bought me things to match my taste – they bought me my army fatigues, my favourite runners and the corduroy suit I wore to my 8th grade semi-formal. I am lucky to have always felt comfortable wearing what pleases me and not what is expected.
