Abstract

In this autoethnographic study, the author defines the process of (re)constructional Queering to apply and better understand their past experiences, identities and evaluate the influence on present identities. Through narratives, photo-voice vignettes, class work, and personal journals the author discovered the hold hegemonic binaries and heteronormativity had on their life. This realization led them to develop their own forms of resistance. An embracement and (re)construction of identity led to self-love.
