Why Out of Yer Shell?
Growing up, Liz faced a lot of confusion over their very feminine gender expression and very masculine personality traits. Through studying gender & sexuality in college, they realized they did not identify with any specific gender and did not see any personal purpose in gender identification for themself. Additionally, as they further explored their spirituality, they felt less like a gendered being and more as a genderless cloud of energy. Since these realizations, Liz has become passionate about questioning the status quo and empowering everyone to embrace all parts of their wonderful, diverse selves, as they are.
“All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention if only one can first conceive of doing so. Moments like this, I can feel your heart beating as clearly as I feel my own, and I know that separation is an illusion. My life extends far beyond the limitations of me.”David Mitchell
