Twenty-two-year-old self-described "Gender Rebel" Jill grew up in New Jersey and moved to Tampa for college. For as long as she can remember, Jill and her mom have disagreed as to how Jill should dress. Jill recalls that she always wanted to buy boy's clothes, even when she was 7, but her mom would always steer her toward the girl's department.
Jill and her mom have always been close, which enabled Jill to come out as a lesbian fairly early on. Still, Jill is worried about how her mom will react when she comes out to her as genderqueer. "She might think it's sick, or freakish," Jill explains. Even so, Jill is determined to succeed in her mission of telling her mom she's genderqueer.
