Portrait of the artist as an angry young gender-dysphoric whatsis.

 

I don't mind posting this publicly (normally all photos of people, especially me, are locked) because this photo is nearly twenty years old now, and frankly if you tried to pick me out of a police lineup with it today, you'd fail. Time is even less kind to femme cross-dressers than it is to everyone else.

 

This is a last photo taken after a long session of mirror portraits in various costumes and makeup. What you're seeing on my face was probably as much exhaustion as frustration. However, finding this in the box of photos all these years later, it now looks to me like defiance.
