“What happens when we say something out loud? Does it become more real? Is it any less really when we keep it to ourselves?”
Aimee Herman, Everything Grows

“Have you ever accidentally swallowed a piece of celery without chewing? The feeling of its weight lodged in your throat, scraping its way down. You think you’re gonna choke, but your throat takes over and digests it, and it takes all the wind out of you. You need to lie down, catch your breath, maybe even take a nap.
That’s how it feels to come out each time.”
Aimee Herman, Everything Grows

“But this music. This music has limbs that can hold me into morning.”
Aimee Herman

“So far it has been sex and leaves that keep me alive”
Renee Gladman, Juice

“Our body-minds tumble, shift, ease their way through space and time, never static. Gender transition in its many forms is simply another kind of motion. I lived in a body-mind assigned female at birth and made peace with it as a girl, a tomboy, a dyke, a queer woman, a butch. But uncovering my desire to transition—to live as a genderqueer, a female-to-male transgender person, a white guy—challenged everything I thought I knew about self-acceptance and love.”
Eli Clare, Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure

“It is never really about what you are striving to get or achieve. It’s the journey.”
Aimee Herman, Everything Grows

“I never want to be known. I’d rather be alone than have everyone talk about me and bother about my life. That’s why I want to be an astronaut. I just want to travel into space and stay there. Be somewhere where no one else goes.”
Aimee Herman, Everything Grows
