Jess Farris: I am a twenty something queer girl who is finally learning how to embrace her truth. Jess FarrisMy life has been a wild ride thus far, and I have learned a lot on the way to where I stand today. I used to be that girl who couldn’t be happy outside of a relationship. Now I’m the girl who is happy for the first time ever; and it happened without holding the title of “girlfriend.” I am a poet, sister, best friend, aunt, daughter, dancer, lover, fighter, and above all else-human. My journey of self discovery and acceptance has only just begun; you’re more than welcome to walk with me.

happiness and fulfillment that I’ve found to be is the ability to live in harmony by balance and to metamorphose negativity into positivity. I’ve learned that fluidity in all aspects of life allows us to experience the many opportunities life offers to excel our progression and individual evolvement.

Tyler JaikTylerJaik: I am an ethical vegan FtM animal rights activist in northern NJ. On weekends when I am able to get out there, I can be found volunteering at for the Animals sanctuary in Blairstown or tabling for the sanctuary at one of many VegFests throughout the year.

I can be snarky and sarcastic or quiet and contemplative. In my spare time I paint boxes and spend time with my two ginger kitties Toby and Tico.

Bill Alexander: I’m a storyteller first and foremost, consumed with a lifetime of plots, mmmmcharacters, and worlds that demand to be shared with the world. I’ve used a number of different mediums to express my ideas, the two most prevalent being sculpture and writing. I have an odd, sometimes inappropriate sense of humor that I’m almost certain will get me in trouble someday. As a hopeless romantic, I crush easily, but find difficulty in maintaining interest. I’m also a philosophical madman when the mood hits me and a professorial night owl who doesn’t drink coffee. Spend five minutes with me, and chances are, I’ll get you to laugh. Shame is overrated. If ever I find the exact formula for notoriety, I will most likely change the world, maybe even for the better.
