“I am an unapologetic, gender nonconforming, bisexual man, who sometimes paints my nails, wears high-heels and refers to almost everything as ‘she.’ I have loved feminine men and masculine women; I have loved masculine men and feminine women. I am versatile. I believe that gender, like sexuality, is not binary; it is a continuum; it is not fixed; it is fluid. That is my truth and I live it every day.”
(An excerpt from Joey Gray’s editor’s letter in the latest issue of HARDY)
Portrait by Brian Brigantti
“I like to be a boy and a girl at the same time… I want people to wonder if I am a boy in a dress or a girl with short hair.”
We are so inspired by Desmond Napoles and so proud to have him in our HARDY family!! See and read more from Joey Gray’s interview with Desi in Vol. 3 “The Future Is Fluid”

“Hi, my name is Jason Greene.”
If gender fluidity had a current poster child, it would be Aunt Freckle. Be sure to check out “30 things you don’t know about me” with Aunt Freckle in HARDY Vol. 3!!
