Alok Vaid Menon // New York City
I grew up in a small conservative town in Texas which simultaneously confirms and challenges every stereotype you might have about Texas. From a young age I navigated two disparate worlds: the tight-knit pan-Indian immigrant community and the white conservatives of my hometown. Because there were so few South Asians around I didn’t really understand the particularities of what it meant to be Malayalee and Punjabi – I just understood myself as “brown.” It was the kind of place that made you immediately aware of your difference, in all of its permutations. I experienced constant and routine racism, homophobia, transphobia, the works! Because I needed an outlet to process everything I was going through I started writing poetry. I didn’t call it poetry at the time, it was more about keeping a diary, but I began to understand the power of art to externalize trauma from your body and make it into something beautiful. So many of the coping strategies I picked up growing up in Texas are the skills that I still call upon today: how to work a room, how to perform like your life depends on it, how to argue for the legitimacy of your being.

Absolutely in love with Alok Vaid-Menon's navigation of non-binary fashion!

"Every day I have to ask myself, ‘Am I ready to get harassed today?’ When I’m walking down the street, everyone knows I’m queer. I visibly defy what it means to be a man or a woman. I’ve had so many people tell me, ‘Maybe if you just took hormones or tried to look more like a woman, you wouldn’t experience so much violence’. But I shouldn’t have to change what I look like to be safe. I could try to disappear, to dress like a boy or a girl but this is about creating a world where when people are different, we say, ‘That’s awesome. Thank you for showing me a different way of living."' - Alok Vaid-Menon.

Alok Vaid Menon is a non-binary, transfeminine, poet of the social media age. Raised in a conservative town in Texas, they struggled to come to terms with their sexuality and identity. Their struggle has manifested deeply in their work as they juggle between poetry, comedy, and dance. Their performances are fluid and experimental, touching upon a personal journey as well as societal absurdities.

"Hi my name is Alok and it's not just that I am neither a man nor a woman, it is that I am so much more than a man or a woman...I use gender neutral pronouns because they give me the opportunity to show you (who I am) in a way that 'he' or 'she' would not." -Alok Vaid-Menon #nonbinary #genderdiversity #alokvaidmenon

POSTCARDS FROM THE PAST //
Royal portraits have always fascinated me for their grandeur of scenery and eminence.
These photographs function both as socio-historical documents — a record of the cultural and social modalities of their time. However, I always wonder if these portraits are romanticised into one dimensional images leaving behind the complexities of that time? They were people who were brave, who were emotional, who were political and who were complicated.
