As we’re probably all aware at this stage, I have a problem around being misracialised, which is why I’ve been too scared to post pictures of myself to the blog. Initially, it was also because I didn’t want you all to know how young I was, but that ship’s sailed.

So, to anyone who’d care to misracialise me, to all the people who’ve made me feel like shit in my own skin:




This is what a non-white woman looks like.

Chally, a pale, non-white woman with very curly hair, blue eyes and glasses, sits on the steps of the NSW State Library, with a column behind her. She has her hands in her lap. She is wearing a cream shirt under a black dress, with black boots and swirly rainbow stockings. Picture taken by her dear friend Beppie, used with permission.
