More Than The Pain: On Butterflies, Trauma And Being Non-Binary

A triptich: in the first picture, Rita, white person with brown hair in a bob haircut, is sitting down and wearing a loose black dress, looking directly into the camera. Rita is holding a lipstick to their lips and holding up a small hand mirror, arms crossed against one another; second picture has them drawing “out of line”, red lipstick spilling down their throat in a single line, head thrown back. Third picture, Rita faces the camera again, eyes wide in surprise, red lipstick all around their mouth.
A headshot: Rita’s face close up, scowling in anger, with red lipstick painted well over the lips like she’s bitten someone bloody.
Image description: Rita holding up a mess of rainbow fringe, facing the camera, black lipstick, purple and teal slashes on their face. They’re wearing a black t-shirt with a cartoon unicorn.
