I've posted another essay published a while back (2008) and added some musing about transgender identity. To pique your interest, I dredged up some photos to share. First, here I am in the role I write about... Conrad Birdie!
That's me on the right -- I'm eleven. You can read the essay by following the "Nonfiction" tab above.
And, just because I found it and thought it made good contrast, here I am on the same stage (the one not playing the upright bass, in case you're in doubt), about three years later. Now, in which photo am I in drag?
