without examples, without models, i began to believe voices in my head that i was a freak, that i am broken, that there is something wrong with me, that i will never be lovable

years later i find the courage to admit that i am transgender, and that this does not mean that i am unlovable

so that this world that we imagine in this room might be used to gain access to other rooms, to other worlds, previously unimaginable

(who are you? why would you come to me?)
