"In Taiwan, the idea of gender is very different from Western culture, where it’s very masculine and feminine. In most of Asia, it’s more about gender harmony and gender balance. So coming here, I didn’t fit into the Western world of masculinity, and I didn’t fit in as a female either. I started to realize I felt most comfortable being ‘other’—not just male, not just female. In my soul, I’m both, but not at the same time, so I fall into a more non-binary pattern."
