50 Shades of Gay
 
06:01
Sexuality, like everything else, is a spectrum. Terms like "gay" and "straight", "male" and "female", are limiting in that they take into account only biology and attraction. Sexuality can be broken down into a trillion components. In this video, I explore three: gender identity, gender expression, and emotional attraction.

How to Know if You're Trans, Part 1
 
08:12
In this video, I discuss the topic, "How to Know if You're Trans" and why it's impossible for me to answer this question without asking a LOT of other questions about the heteronormative society within which we live, and the ways in which we've all been socially conditioned. What is gender made up of anyway? Genitals? The way we dress? The shape of our bodies? The pronouns we prefer? Join me on this journey as I try to find the words to describe my confusion around this topic.

Why is Sex So Taboo?
 
10:23
In this video, I explore the question, "Why is sex so taboo?" As a society, sex is everywhere (in the media and in advertising) and yet people rarely speak about their sex lives in ways that are vulnerable and open. The overall discrepancy between the information that comes in through our senses vs. what we're taught is "okay" to talk about can be very damaging, especially during our developmental years.
