Self-discovery is checking in with my body and mind, and remembering to be kind to myself. There can be so much shame for various reasons that can prevent you from allowing yourself to be explorative and fluid in your sexuality. The journey in sexuality is different for everyone, and I think being honest and patient with yourself and others is key. As a queer person who came out very young, I feel finally at peace in my relationship with my sexuality (although it took a lot of time) and being with an understanding partner has helped to fuel that. My sexuality is deeply tied to my community, my livelihood and my art practice, and I am intent on amplifying other voices in my community.
