This blog is somewhat about resisting being defined by your physicality. This is what I will tell you about myself…
I’m brown. I’m a non-Indigenous person of colour living on stolen Wurundjeri land in the area also know as Melbourne, Australia.
I’m middle class, university educated, currently able-bodied, and speak English as my first language, with a so-called Australian accent.
I’m queer, have been socialised female and identify as genderqueer. My preferred gender pronouns are they/them/their.
on commenting on this blog…
I take long breaks from logging into this blog to read, approve and respond to comments for self-care reasons. If I don’t approve your comment, it might be for this reason, or that it contained something I felt was offensive, took up more space than felt appropriate, or a question asked was already covered in the content of the blog or that I didn’t feel capable to give an opinion on.
on re-posting posts and poems..
Please ask permission before copying and pasting poems / posts elsewhere. Link to it as you like, crediting me as ‘harshbrowns’, let me know if you like but PLEASE, I prefer being asked permission before linking this blog with my visual artist name.
