I’m Back!

Hello, friends! I know I have been gone for a while, and that there are not many of you, but here’s a short statement while I try to get back to creating content:

Are You Non-Binary?

It means something different for everyone, so keep that in mind as you continue reading. I’m going to attempt to create a jumping point to learn for those who are questioning their own identity or just exploring. If you are questioning your gender, know that you are not alone.

Misconceptions About Non-Binary Folx

1. They need to choose. Literally, the whole point of the gender non-binary is that there is not just 2 genders to choose from. 2. Using the right pronouns and name are not really that big of a deal.

Introducing Me!

Hello there! My name is Sam Sagar. I am an Indian, queer, non-binary person with an undiagnosed chronic illness and ADHD.
