My girlfriend took this picture of me last March, when she came out to visit me for her spring break. I decided to use it because it is one of the few pictures of myself that I actually like, all the more special to me because my partner took it. It was also a great night, one of the few times she and I were able to go on an actual date because she lives on the other side of the country.
The background picture I used is an old typewriter. I don't own a typewriter, but I decided to use it symbolically because my goal in life is to be a writer (like my word probably hinted). I want to write books. I especially want to produce stories on the mainstream market that include a wide variety of queer characters. I would really like to write novels in the fantasy genres that include main characters that we would label as "queer" because I find the novels I read to be severely lacking in that department. That's why being a writer is so important to me! I want to change what I've seen so far.
