Oh it's THEM...
What a refreshing experience to hang out with my friend Ray last weekend. They brought me up to The Cape, Ray’s native turf. The comfort with which Ray shapeshifts is always astounding to me. Their androgynous body lends itself to assuming either extreme of the sexes, or just down the middle where Ray likes to play. Heads turned and alot of people complimented their look, but then again, it was Provincetown. How gender non-binary people fare in “real” life might be another story. Or is it? Recently another friend of mine came back from North Carolina where he had an acting gig for a few weeks. He remarked on how many ambiguous people he came across down there, and what’s more interesting, he said they were just part of the fabric in the community. Kinda remarkable for the South, I think. Are things changing? The media seems to be awash with proponents from both sides. I’ll keep on wearing my boots and dresses because that’s how I am comfortable, at least for today. Who knows about tomorrow…
