“I’ve had some people in the genderqueer community say to me, ‘You’re a cis gay male, stop trying to tell a trans woman’s story.’ And I’ve had to say, ‘Honey, anybody who’s known me since 2010, 2011, anybody who knew me in New York City knew that I was cross-dressing, that I was feminine trans-identified, living my life escorting out in these streets. I wasn’t in a college classroom learning about genderqueer.’”

“I understand now where that misunderstanding comes from, but I always have to tell people Mykki Blanco did not start as a drag character. Mykki Blanco started as a video-art project when I was already trans-identified. I was already going by ‘she.’”
