How do you identify?

Is it in the pumas or stilettos you rock?  Is it displayed in your dyke do or your long twisted locs? Is it in the home you create with your boy/girlfriend? The pronoun with which you identify?  Is it in the rituals or family customs you share with your mother or sister?   We each perform our gender and sexuality uniquely.  How do you do it?  Are you even aware you do it?  Has your expression of your gender or your sexuality changed over time?
