Reflecting on Pride Month as a Queer Non-Binary Person

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.

“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.”

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.
