About
Written by Jules

Everyone has a story. The things that shape these stories are vast. Our stories are filled with many different colours and flavours, causing others to respond in a variety of ways. Sometimes our stories cause people to rejoice with us. Sometimes they cause others to recoil.

Sometimes my stories have caused others to put my life in danger.

Often I have been told that I should tell my stories; stories that convey who I am.

But who I am is complicated. I’m a trans man, but that isn’t only who I am. I’m the survivor of horrible abuses. But that isn’t only who I am. I’m a nerd. But that isn’t only who I am. I’m a parent, but that isn’t only who I am. I have lupus, but this isn’t only who I am. There are many facets to who I am. This is true of everyone.

When people ask me to share my stories, normally these requests are to share only one small piece of the whole. I have more websites that I can count dedicated to tiny pieces of the whole. I’ve always felt I’ve been dishonest by sharing small facets in multiple places.

It won't always be pretty and the look and feel of the website will change as the stories evolve.

How does one tell a complete story? How does one tell a story when tell that story will put the storyteller in actual harms way?

I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to figure out the answer, but I want to try.

I am going to tell all of my stories here. At first, they will be in small segmented pieces. As this these histories accumulate, I’ll begin to weave them into a whole. It won’t always be pretty and the look and feel of the website will change as the stories evolve. However, I hope that I eventually get this place of healing. Not only for myself, but for others who may have experiences similar.
