“For the past 4 years, I’ve been wanting to cut my hair. I was never truly able to describe it other than I hated having long hair because of the maintenance. Only this past year was a finally able to cut it and seeing myself with short hair brought me a feeling that I can’t even begin to describe the feeling. A year after I initially wanted to cut my hair, I realized that I was queer and I started labeling myself as a lesbian as the term just made me feel comfortable. And that’s all I ever truly look for, comfort. Comfort in, my body, my sexual preferences, and my gender identity. Once I cut my hair it felt like I could breathe and I saw myself in the mirror. So I translated that feeling into this piece of me cutting my hair, all in the lesbian flag colors.”
This art piece continues to resonate with me. It is so important to feel safe and comfortable with who we are.
