About this submission

I wanted to tell the story of Silas, a young trans person named who is straddling two spaces - their home life with family that is trying their best to understand them - which is still not enough - and the queer spaces they are trying to fit in that are hyper focused on sex, drugs, alcohol, and night life. During a time in my life when I was coming to terms with my trans identity, I felt isolated in and outside of queer spaces and my home was a frequent stressor that made understanding my self a struggle.
