"I sit here now once; do you think it will be different to sit here again?" by Cassidy Power
“I’m nervous, more nervous than I expected. Thank you for the coffee this morning. You are reading at the queer event for Pride Month. Two more days. I’m sitting here, and I cannot sit still. My binder is damp because I forgot to hang it out to dry last night. It’s 10.12am. Three minutes to go. I love you.”
I write this while waiting for my appointment at the sexuality clinic. A copy of National Geographic’s January 2017 issue titled “Gender Revolution” is on the table. The shifting landscape of gender.
How can I survey the shifting landscape which is my own body with photography? It is in flux and I am fully aware of its boundaries or limitations. This is a snapshot of my queer lived experience in images.
