Good luck, future me. I hope you feel more certain: Noah, a high school senior in Illinois, is writing to organise his thoughts. Considering ideas of gender and where his identity might fit on the spectrum, Noah’s letter is full of questions for his future self. Now, as that slightly older person, Noah shares how the answers weren’t as important as the process of asking the questions in the first place. He talks about applying for colleges, disregarding labels, finding community online, and realizes that where he feels comfortable to express himself has slowly shifted since he wrote this letter.
