wornjournal:

“My parents—everybody—would tell me that I’m a boy, I have to act this way, you can’t wear these things, you can’t put on makeup. And so for me, fashion and the visual expression of myself became a way to claim self-love. Every time I put on a lipstick, every time I drape myself, I become my own self rather than what everybody else would rather have me be… 
But the fact is that I didn’t become this person overnight. Nobody does this overnight, and nobody does this without really struggling to find themselves. It’s interesting how many people don’t grasp the concept that fashion can be an internal experience.”
