I identify as faʻafafine to my friends and family and as queer / non-binary in the Western context.

Those that have come before me have blazed a trail that I try to honor by blazing my own.

I want our Pacific Island communities to be fiercely proud in our cultural, gender, and sexual identities and to work collectively to reduce the high rates of suicide, self-harm, and mental health challenges that affect us.
