Hi. I’m Adrien Converse. I’m a surreal artist, experimental musician, and content strategist based out of Bellingham, WA. I’m low-key obsessed with observing the plants and fungi in the incredible forests out here.
I also happen to be a person who has no gender. I’m not a man, and I’m not a woman.
It’s been an adventure figuring out how to live as myself in this society, especially considering where I started out—raised as though I was a girl in a small conservative evangelical community that had specific ideas about the woman I was supposed to turn out to be.
Even though it’s been a hard road, and it’s been tempting to get angry about how things have gone, this adventure has led me to find something that makes it all worth it.
My experience is about much more than gender. It’s about freedom. Freedom from the expectations of society for how people must behave to be worthy, successful, and safe. Freedom from fear. Freedom to just be who I am, regardless of how I’m defined by others.
The more free I am, the more I want to share that freedom with everyone I can.
That’s what this site is all about: the freedom that comes from deconforming.
