Krystal, Tulsa Oklahoma
“Transilient: What about you? How do you make yourself be seen in the world and stay safe?
Krystal: I think…I don’t care. This is my life. I am going to live it. You have your thoughts, if I don’t like them I don’t need to be around you. I get to pick and choose who gets to come into my life. So, I could care less what the damn world thinks anymore. I’m me.
Transilient: Did you perform in the transgender awareness week talent show in Tulsa?
Krystal: Yeah, I just did the first thing I could think of.
Transilient: What’d you do??
Krystal: I made noises with my throat!
*Krystal and her friends (Sharon and Krissy) laugh *
Sharon (chimes in) : We all have our talents.
Krystal: I plead the fifth. “
