Nutmeg and Sage is an opinion Blog created by writer Shanese Indoowaaboo Steele. Here you will find pieces that cover a wide range of topics from Queer dating, mental health and body positivity. N&S looks to cover issues and questions that address the realities of identity that spans from the Windward Islands of Trinidad, Grenada and Carriacou to Turtle Island.
*Disclaimer* This is my personal understanding and relationship with the term Two-Spirit as an Anishinaabe Kwe. This is not to negate anyones choice to use the term to reclaim identity NOR should it be used to invalidate, erase or shame Indigenous peoples use of the word.
I wish it was that easy. I wish I could tell you that my body dysmorphia, anxiety and depression are just cute little characteristics that I’ve acquired over the years that make me ever more so lovable.
BEING A PART OF THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY DOES NOT ERASE YOU RACISM OR TRANSPHOBIA! Whew I’m glad we got that out of the way.
