This is why we’ve been so quiet… Coco and I hustled all summer getting a racialized queer pride going in Montréal. It’s called 2QTPOC

Coco and I set up shop at Montreal’s anarchist bookfair - selling our idea of the Sissy Dream. Fluffy icing, chocolate telegrams, pink jewels made of playdoh, drawings books. This photo of cupcakes isn’t mine, but it’s the photo that we replicated with sour belts, icing, food colouring and cupcakes.

I wanted to erase the gender binary. 

But not like this. In Montréal, the hostility accumulates. People are impatient for me to get out of the way at the store. They frown at me on the metro. They ask me where I’m from. They’re condescending, or they pity me. They talk about me audibly. They don’t smile back. They ask me where I’m from. My peers are embarrassed by these testimonies, and move on to other things. They ask me where I’m from. They seize my friendship, but easily drop it. They organize justice workshops but listen exclusively to each other. They ask me where I’m from. They fight for freedom and equality in a sea of whiteness.

I stopped working on butch appeal. I stopped working on sissy flair. I stopped leaving the house. I wanted to erase the gender binary, but not like this.

Where to be racialized is to be genderless

This is in preparation for a self-portrait that I’m putting up in a group show at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel during Pride this year. Tell me what you think - does it ring a bell for you? What would you add? xo elisha
