My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm Ben.

I am an out and proud transfeminine queer individual. I'm looking for someone who respects and celebrates this. I was born male, and I have been on female hormones for about 4 months. I am open to dating all kinds of people.

I think the gender binary is a cultural fossil that fails miserably to express the wide variety of gender expression!

I am currently a bartender at the Performing Arts Center and a volunteer organizer for my labor union, UNITE HERE! I am passionate about social justice, and very active in the local activist scene!

I'm kinky. We'll leave it at that for now.

I smoke weed.

I am a proud atheist, but I try not to be a douche about it.

I love theater, especially opera, and I go often to local performances! I also love to cook good food and snuggle at home with some Netflix :)

I am looking for someone who can make me laugh but who also loves to laugh at my goofy, often inappropriate (I can relate anything to sex or poop) humor. But be ready to go from poop jokes to Proust references at the bat of an eye (just kidding who the fuck reads Proust?). I love to talk about philosophy, Art, especially literature and theater, politics and, of course, relationships and feelings!

I am looking for someone who can have fun without having to spend a bundle or go cliff diving or something.

I love games, be they video or board.

I am perfectly happy being single, so I have no intention of settling for someone who is not really right for me. That's why I'm here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My goals:

Empower working people to resist corporate oppression.

Grow and strengthen the movement of poor and middle-class people to reclaim our Democracy.

Raise the consciousness of the world about Lesbian, Gay, Biesexual, and Transgender equality, one person at a time.

Reverse the often corrosive and toxic effects of religious belief on our society by encouraging people to question and examine their faith more closely.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making real connections with people, making people feel at ease about the fact that they are speaking to a "man" wearing a dress, public speaking, running meetings. I am one of the best chant leaders in town!! I am also good at causing straight guys to be confused lol!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm Trans. After that, my laugh (goofy but endearing), my smile. I also have a nice pair of legs! ;) Work what you got Mama!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(not necessarily things and not necessarily six) books, Internet, phone, chocolate, laughter, music, friends, uh trimet?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The fact that I spend a lot of time thinking

heh
