Reclaiming a syndrome: embracing vs. cursing its existence

Lots of things get "reclaimed" — body shapes, offensive words, etc. Today I'm doing something bizarre: I am reclaiming disease. I'm going to present you with a narrative that is NOT popular with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: I am proud of and happy with me having PCOS. Because what it gave me is a beautiful, soft, warm, luxurious face and body full of curly, beautiful fur. I am not beautiful despite it. It is part of my beauty.


Joining a freakshow to really feel human: My life as a bearded burly carny lass

Hi. I'm Little Bear. If you haven’t heard of me, I’m a bearded lady. I perform both solo as a singer of opera and show tunes (often incorporating burlesque), and as a member of Seattle-based modern sideshow troupe, Wreckless Freeks.

However, I have not always been so candid in admitting so.
