who are your lgbtqia+ role models?

oh so many…alan turing is a very special one for me. i love anoni for giving a soundtrack to my teenage angst and opening my eyes to a world beyond cis-normativity. i'm forever grateful to marsha p. johnson for my rights today. also truman capote for writing some of my favourite books, james baldwin for his intellect, oscar wilde for the sass, lili elbe for the bravery. arca, hamed sinno…yea, i'm definitely forgetting people…however -in fear of sounding soppy- i guess my non-cis friends are my biggest role models. they are some of the bravest most inspiring people i've ever met.

what makes you get out of bed in the morning?

anything else you want people to know?
