Adhering to None

In my life I have taken on many labels for my gender identity and sexuality. I tried and tried over and over again, trying to find something that fit how I was feeling, desperately trying to seek my place in such a vast community. Even after settling for a year on a label, I never truly felt at home. A year ago I decided to stop trying all together, identifying merely as a member of the community. I feared alienation, but have found comfort in my own head and feel the most authentic I have ever felt.
