    Great article. Thanks… never heard of CN Lester before, but now I intend to go look into their work.

  2. Wonderful article, and CN is possibly the most talented person I know

  3. Go CN!!

    I am of one degree of separation with zie lol =D.

  5. Tremendous interview, CN is quite courageous!

    And kudos to Pink News for highlighting the experiences of non-binary identified trans* and genderqueer people through this article.

  6. Nice one CN :-) CN is truly talented (Nice one Paris too) :-)

  7. Grateful for this – as is said in the article, there’s still so little opportunity to read actual transfolk talking about their lives and experiences, rather than being the discussed side-show.

  8. Excellent and illuminating interview: CS seems grounded and together. The kind of person I would love to meet and befriend.

  9. Seen CN performing in RVT on Tuesday 8. March. Impressive and cool.

    Interesting interview and article…

    Thanks for that.

  11. Great article, its so rare to see anything on genderqueer people in the media, and most people don’t even know that genderqueers exist. Well done Pink News for publishing this, and to CN Lester for sharing their views.

  13. A wonderful interview. If only more people spoke up, and even more people shut up.

  14. Amazing article, and really helpful for me.
    I don’t know how to identify myself.
    I feel more comfortable saying I am bisexual, but to say I refuse to identify myself as fully male, fully female, or fully transgender…that’s tough.
    I like the German idea of ‘Neuterum’. Gender neutral. I just like to forget about gender full stop and f*ck it off – just be me.

    I like to sing any vocal voice category, operatic gender role, really – if only I felt it were ok to do so. the only ones I can’t do, yet, are low tenor and below, and high soprano. Should I advertise as a high tenor on my CV…? I almost could.

    I have been afraid of the classical music industry for a long time. Yet it is so refreshing to read you write about it containing the misfits of society. I was so afraid to come out at the conservatoire, which is stupid because the percentage of gay men in the performing arts industry must be so much higher than in other more masculine industries.

    Yet I have no idea about ladies.
