In Project Basics I talk about being gender queer. I am thinking this may limit my project as I am also looking to make intercultural connections amoungst women. To discover how societal expectations rule our gender. My goal is to have a critical mass of stories and portraits reflecting gender variations and to show how birth, class, family, country of origin and ancestry, personal taste, body type, age and whatever other qualifiers are placed on us affect us. “Gender variations” does not necessarily mean trans, but can also be one’s interpretation of what is feminine or masculine. To think about times when we were awarded or punished in relation to our “appropriate” gender-like behaviors or looks.
