Question:What is your ethnic background? Your sexual orientation? - Anonymous
I find this to be a really interesting question for a page dedicated to a specific project and not so much me as a person. Did you ask because you feel it’s important for people to situate themselves when presenting information, or did you ask because who and what I am will help you judge whether or not you like this work?
I may be different from you, I may be the same as you, but I hope that is not an issue because Negotiating Space is for everyone. We are all looking at the world from different viewpoints and what matters here is helping each other understand what our view looks like in a constructive and positive way.
I go to great lengths to keep my identity and my lived experience out of the stories people tell on Negotiating Space. So, in that way, I hope my being white, brown, black, trans, queer, straight, lesbian, or whatever does not matter in the slightest.
If you’d like to comment on this response, please feel free to do so! Thanks for the question. -n.
