Our Farm Manager Trik shares their journey and their thoughts.
As Pride Month comes to an end, I’d like to share my experience as a queer non-binary trans person.
I found myself gravitating towards the queer community in high school and came out as queer at the age of 16.
After high school, I came out as non-binary which means I do not identify as a woman or a man. Since then, I identify as trans masculine and don’t use she/her pronouns.
It’s important to me that my community doesn’t see me as a woman, and works towards making me and other trans people comfortable. I’m proud to know women who are so strong physically and emotionally, who have influenced me to be the go-getter I am today.
Happy Pride Month!
The purpose of Pride Month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had — and continue to have — locally, nationally, and internationally. Here at the Bounty Farm, we are proud to have a community of diverse identities forming a cohesive team.
LGBTQ Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Read more about the celebration on the Library of Congress webpage.
