"Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now.?
-A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick)

Lana

Lana identifies as a white, middle-class, queer, disabled woman student at the University of Minnesota. A member of the Women Student Activist Collective, Lana intends on graduating in 2010 with a BA in Gender Women and Sexuality Studies. Recognizing her imposed subject position she remains critically aware and hopeful of change to this day. People describe her as honest. She describes herself as a queen.

Remy

Remy is definitely not a woman and probably not a man either.

Remy identifies as a white, queer, trans, sissy, filmmaker and wordsmith. They don't eat meat or exercise their right to vote as a U.S. citizen. Though they do their their best to not support the perpetuation of hierarchies, they are currently dog-paddling through the University system and frequently content with the goal of one day teaching there. Perhaps they just really want to wear blazers with elbow patches while smoking loose leaf tobacco from a classy wooden pipe.

In any case, Remy doesn't usually pass for their age. They do often wonder for what they are passing.
