Every part of me: mission statement

Last year, I ran a series called Every Part of Me, which documented the coming out stories of various LGBTQIA+ students and teachers at CHS. By the spring, it had died down: I had reservations about the idea of having a queer-based series.

It was my worst fear that efforts to cover the LGBTQIA+ would impact readers negatively. I worried it would influence them to see queerness not as a small part of a big and complex person, but as the entire identity of whoever’s story I told; that readers would assume every non-straight person should have to come out and should have to do so in a certain way; and that my focus on queerness would ultimately make LGBTQIA+ people seem more abnormal or out of the ordinary.

But, I am resurrecting this series.

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

I cannot control the way my readers take in the articles I write, but I can control the stories I choose to tell. It is completely normal to be LGBTQIA+, but it is not always treated as such; I hope that the more I share stories like these, the more normalized queerness will become.
