Being Indigenous is always something I’ve cared about and has been at the forefront of my life, so [storytelling] became about how to talk about being Indigenous and queer at the same time...There are so many mainstream queer voices out there and I’m more interested in talking about where that intersects with race and identity...there are a lot of people that can talk about being queer but not a lot that can talk about being two-spirit.
