This image of power and even magic contained with queer identity is something I’ve carried with me since coming out as a teenager.

Early on I was very taken with the Native American (My grandfather was born in the Navajo reservation) term Two-Spirit.

I generally refrain from using words like masculine or feminine, because I don’t think they exist, and question their role in how we define ourselves.

But in those limited terms, I have always connected with both, and feel incredibly blessed to be queer so that I can dance between them without any self-doubt.

Two-spirit is a modern umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans for Gender variant individuals in their communities.

The presence of male two-spirits existed before European contact, and "was a fundamental institution among most tribal peoples." However, in most tribes a relationship between a two-spirit and non-two-spirit was seen for the most part as neither heterosexual nor homosexual (in modern day terms) but more hetero-normative; European colonists, however, saw such relationships as homosexual.

Partners of two-spirits have not historically viewed themselves as homosexual, and moreover drew a sharp conceptual line between themselves and two-spirits.

There were few openly gay European men in America at this time, due to legal consequences as well as social ostracism.
