How I Became... Me

How I Became... Me



Hebrew, English

Lecture, Panel

The only constant is change: coming out of the closet, twice.
Who are you? who do you love? what are your pronouns? such simple questions for some, yet so confusing for others.
Shira came out as a lesbian when she was a teenager, when it was just LGT - either you’re attracted to the same sex or you want to be the other sex. Finding her orientation as a lesbian explained a lot, yet still something didn’t feel right: She was boyish as a girl, masculine as a woman, and generally asked herself if she should transition because she don’t quite feel herself in her skin. However she felt that she's not a man or want to become one.

The last decade brought up a conversation about gender and sexual fluidity, which helped Shira redefine herself as a Genderqueer, come out again, and deal with similar and different challenges.
Join Shira in a story about having the cake, eating it too - with sprinkles of pride on top.
