Hey, y’all! My name’s Kristian Young. I’m a queer, Black, Autistic, nonbinary trans man from the Washington, DC Metro Area. My pronouns are he/him/his or they/them/theirs.
I didn’t always know I was transgender – I used to be a really feminine kid, but only because I was pressured to be that way. I was told that I had to like fashion and makeup and all that girly stuff or I would be weird and people would laugh at me. Being pressured to fit in sent me into a deep depression – I attempted suicide twice. My last one was just a few months ago. But I was saved by Jesus Christ, and I’m very grateful for that.
Like I said, I’m a Christian, but I’m not really a religious Christian. I’m more of a spiritual one. I support equal rights for LGBTQ people, abortion, feminism and stopping oppression. I believe that Jesus doesn’t want anyone to be oppressed.
I enjoy writing, drawing, going online and watching TV. My favorite show is Steven Universe! Just mentioning it is enough to get me stimming.
I’m also a serious foodie. I love Chinese, Korean, Mexican, BBQ and Soul Food.
Also, I’m fascinated by world cultures, especially Korean culture. I’m also learning the Korean language. I took Spanish in high school, but I forgot a lot of it.
Well, I guess that’s all I have to say for now. Later gators!
