I’m Dorian, I’m 19, I’m Canadian (Ontario right now). Most of my life is spent Being a Student–I’m an undergrad in sociology and women’s studies. When I am not Being a Student, I do…stuff. I watch Doctor Who, I listen to music (Joanna Newsom, Janelle Monae, musical theatre are the big ones lately). I sing, I play harp (or I used to, and I want to get back into it).
And then there is the Activist Stuff. This is a big part of what makes me tick. Right now I’m sort of identifying just as an anti-oppression activist, at least until I find a label that fits better (or decide to do without one altogether). I volunteer with the queer group at my university, I go to protests, I try to participate in the culture around me.
I’m Métis. The role this plays in my life is one I’m still parsing, but I know it is important. I’m queer, and I am currently pursuing diagnosis for both Asperger Syndrome (or possibly ADHD! NO-ONE KNOWS) and depression, both of which are HUGE IRRITATING PROCESSES, as it turns out. I’m pretty invested in disability activism, partly because of this personal relevance, but mostly because I think it’s really fucking important in a general sense, and sometimes overlooked.
I also like video games.
So there you go! Dorian, in a (freakishly large) nutshell.
