“we have been taught to fear the very things that have the potential to set us free”
Alok Vaid-Menon

“It’s not just that you internalize the shame; rather, it becomes you. You no longer need the people at school telling you not to dress like that; you already do it to yourself.”
Alok Vaid-Menon, Beyond the Gender Binary

“I am sorry that the only way we have been taught to heal is to hurt.”
Alok Vaid-Menon, Femme in Public
