Genderqueer.

I’m genderqueer
and it makes me a better man
to be male and female
both and neither
the whole dao, the yin and the yang

I’m genderqueer
you don’t have to fear me
I am me, I am you
I am all of us
I am the great we are

I’m genderqueer
I have always been, will always be
I am my mother
I am my father
I am the mountain and sun, wind and sea

I’m genderqueer
Take me as I am, or leave me – you decide
To those who understand
I extend my hand
I’ve got a boat, I’m crossing to the other side
