In 2022, I circled back to some of the participants from this project and invited them to expand on their experience participating, how the Covid 19 pandemic has affected them, and if they have any updates they’d like to share with the world. Felicity Stone generously shared the following :
I come across individuals much like myself who suffer a great deal due to hetero cis-normative concept of what it is to be masculine or feminine. We are challenged by society because of preconceived notions of what gender and sexuality should be. Being a gender non-conforming individual in the San Joaquin County it can be difficult to not feel pressured to the stereotypes of the gender norm. I support my community as an open polyamorous, pansexual, trans woman supporting body positivity by pointing to that fact I do not shave my arms and my femininity stands strong. I also want to remind that despite an individual’s appearance their “Pronouns Are Important”.
Polyamorous, pansexual, transgender woman
