These honest illustrations explain what it's like to come out as genderqueer.
There's no rush in becoming the person you want to be.
In March 2015, Justin Hubbell came out online as genderqueer and got tons of love and support from hundreds of people.
It was beautiful. But then what? Justin had all this wind in their sails and were excited to find out all about presenting as female.
But SPOILER ALERT: It wasn't as simple as they thought. Lucky for us, Justin documented their powerful journey in this eye-opening comic about being true to yourself — no matter how long it takes to figure out what that means to you.
Comic by Justin Hubbell.
Justin says they knew what "genderqueer" meant, but they didn't know what it meant for them ... yet. And that's OK!
The rules are: There are no rules.
People come in all shapes and sizes. Everyone also has their own sense of fashion. So how you choose to present yourself is up to you and nobody else.
It's also important to remember that dressing a certain way or looking a certain way does not and will not change who you are inside. Whatever you identify with remains the same. So if you're trying to figure out what feels good on you, remember: one size does not fit all.
This heartwarming comic reminds us that there's no rush in becoming exactly who you want to be.
There's also no rush in figuring out how you want to be seen by the world, and that can change week-to-week too.
So take your time and enjoy the ride. It's not a race!
