Well, now that the all-consuming interference that is the Renaissance Faire is over, I can actually sit down and do this ^_^.

Who am I and Why did I join yellowarmbands?

I... am a 28-year-old transdyke who wants to learn Japanese, and wants to learn how to draw. I have ideas for my first book, but not how to put them together yet

Honestly, I originally started looking for groups like YellowArmBands because I wanted to do more with my time regarding subjects like the wbw and gender than but that more can be achieved by dialogue than screaming and internet tit-for-tat. Although, that's not to say that the occasional bit of yelling is always bad ^_^. I think my continued growth as an individual, let alone a trans individual, will be better served by being around those who are less... enamored of a binary gender system and less inclined to be self-defeating.

Oh, the amount of time for a reply is no problem at all, I think I can comprehend in some way the craziness that must come with the end of Fest, especially with the events of this year.

Anyway, thought I'd mention that I will definitely be up next year; the only reason I didn't come this year is that my girlfriend had a prior commitment to a pottery show. So, if there's anything I can volunteer for, I'd be more than happy to. =)
