Introduce Yourself: Hello, I’m Zayde an 18 year old queer transmasculine creator of things.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I think we’re all essentially the same. We’re all living, breathing, thinking, and doing on this planet that we’re on searching for something to do while we wait to die. Some people do good with the time they have and some people do bad, it’s all subjective when you think about it from a neutral standpoint.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I’d like to make art in all different mediums (canvas, music, film, poetry, prose, etc.) and I’d like to show people’s experiences from different perspectives and walks of life so we can understand each other better.
How would you impact the world?: I would help people see other people’s experiences to erase the sense of ‘otherness’
Struggles In Life? : Being black, queer, and gender variant makes ignorant or uneducated people see me as odd or less than or a threat an ‘other’ but it just gives me a unique lense of seeing and experiencing this life. I also struggle from depressive episodes and social anxiety.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I feel pretty good about Myself as in what essentially makes me Me but I would like to start T soon and get top surgery. And tattoos.
What does love mean to you?: Love is what some people call God, some people call the Universe, and many other names. Love is connection. Love is beauty. Love is looking at all the stars in the night sky or being on an open sea and feeling like nothing more than a speck of dust. Love is feeling like the entire world and what lies beyond it is yours.
