About this submission

I do not have a relationship with my biological father but I do have a wonderful dad. My biological father is Korean and he was abusive towards my mother and during my gender transition I was constantly worried about becoming someone like him. The man I call my dad is someone who I'm proud to be kin with. Sugar and Rice tells my story of experiencing fatherly love as a gender non-conforming child, ideas of nature and nurture, and the importance of a multi-cultural upbringing.
