We just made history apparently! First time ever that a person has been in the cover of a “Men’s” magazine and a “Women’s” magazine at the same time! @divamagazine and @gaytimesmag worked together to release a cover that featured the same human on the front as a supportive statement about nonbinary, nonconforming, genderfluid, gender queer and more type individuals.

Rose Mcgowan’s partner, gender fluid model Rain Dove was maced by a woman in the ladies room November 20th as first reported by Hate Trackers.The woman then messaged Rain on Instagram telling them that she was happy for the pain that she caused them.

Rain Dove posted about the assualt on Instagram

“This person peppersprayed me in a “women’s restroom” a little bit ago. I didn’t get to converse with this being because this person just sprayed me and ran past with their kids in terror, asking the security guard to come in and confront me. I wasn’t even able to get the humans name because of the chaos and the washing.”

Amazingly the mother contacted them on Instagram to gloat. But Rain Dove responded with love and compassion,,,

“Then suddenly out of the blue this person contacted me again. We had a conversation and here’s how it went. We have a Skype convo schedule with a trans friend of mine as well to get another perspective. In exchange we are buying this person lunch via delivery. Just get the education out there. Stop the pain. Stop the violence. Stop the homogenous assessment.”

Born with a female body, Rain Dove Dubilewski lived their early years believing they were ugly according to their Wiki page.  Called “Danielle” by their parents, the large framed child was taunted by cruel classmates with the perjorative “Tranny Danny”.

On becoming a fashion model…

Rain Dove told the Miami Hearld that they lost a bet on a football game to a friend who happened to be a model.
We were watching a Cleveland Browns game, and she told me I should be a model. I said that models are pretentious people who don’t eat. She said, “If you choose the winning team, I’ll do you a favor. If I choose the winning team, you’ll go to a casting call.” She won, so I went. I looked around and there were a bunch of blonde women, and they told me I was there on the wrong day. When I came back the next day, I realized it was all men. I thought they made a mistake, but I decided I might as well go with it, and they cast me. A few hours before the show they handed me my outfit — a pair of Calvin Klein men’s underwear — and I waited until 20 minutes before I was supposed to walk out on the runway. The stylist said, “Why aren’t you in your outfit?”

So they gave you nothing to cover your top half?

“Exactly. So I put on the underwear and walked out topless, breasts flopping everywhere. I thought the designer was going to pass out; he was so confused. So he puts me in a big Calvin Klein men’s shirt and says, “Swear to God, you will not tell anyone you’re a woman!” I walked out and I walked back. I didn’t tell anyone I was a woman. I even kissed a girl at the end of the day. The show didn’t get as much publicity as the people who coordinated it would’ve liked, so they started telling people: “Did you know that boy #17 was actually a girl?” That’s when people started seeking me out to do other work.”

This person peppersprayed me in a “women’s restroom” a little bit ago. I didn’t get to converse with this being because this person just sprayed me and ran past with their kids in terror, asking the security guard to come in and confront me. I wasn’t even able to get the humans name because of the chaos and the washing. Proves being so awkwardly painful with contact lenses. But it happens moderately often especially while traveling that people get scared or volatile when I go into the restroom so I just shrugged it off and continued life. Then suddenly out of the blue this person contacted me again. We had a conversation and here’s how it went. We have a Skype convo schedule with a trans friend of mine as well to get another perspective. In exchange we are buying this person lunch via delivery. Just get the education out there. Stop the pain. Stop the violence. Stop the homogenous assessment. See me for my actions not my body. I am an experience. I am intentions. I am an awareness. Not simply flesh. #LetMePee #GivePEEceAChance #genderqueer #genderfluid #lgbtq #bathroombreak #trans #transpeoplearepeople #lovewins #seeME #educatedonthate #genderisthematrix #PoopHappens

I spent a day dressed and made up in the same aesthetic as Britney Spears- then took @rosemcgowan out on a date to discuss identity, attraction and love. Why? Because it’s all part of a series I’ve created in which I explore my own gender identity by exploring the people who have existed before me. Our first week it’s “7 Famous Femmes”. The second it’s “7 Manly Men”. The third it’s “7 Nonconforming Legends” and so on and so forth. We aim to explore what it has meant to be “male” “female” or “other” throughout history. We get to dive deep into people like Queen Elizabeth 1, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, etc But from the angle of learning how their gender identity affected their path in life. There’s so many hilarious TRUE stories too! Like Princess Diana getting snuck into a queer club by Freddie Mercury by disguising herself in “male” drag! This is like Drunk History meets Dirty Jobs meets Parts Unknown. It’s fun. Honest. Raw. And at times painful. FULL 3 Minute trailer of the ENTIRE WEEK available on my Patreon!

THIS ISNT YOUR TYPICAL “Coming Out” Video. Yes. I’m “Coming Out”. Finally. Everybody here it is- I experience depression and anxiety- sometimes even derealization in crowded stressful places. I’m not ashamed of it. It’s a part of my life experience. There was a time where I wouldn’t leave the house for days or even a week, I barely ate, had insomnia, felt that perhaps things will never change. That I was alone. That I was worth little. And it got worse because I felt I couldnt talk to my friends about it. Society really ingrained in me that telling people about what I was going through is dramatic, burdensome, and emo. My agency even offers free therapy but I was afraid to use the option because the stigma with being labeled “in therapy” like I was broken. Or dangerous. It could lose me jobs and even my reputation. But then after a huge natural shakeup in my life- losing my partner of two years, home, and seemingly direction I hit a “no fucks given” wall. I tried therapy. And it wasn’t for me but it did help a little. I then added meditation, working out, talking to my friends, making art- and my life turned around. Being honest about my mental and emotional health needs saved my life. Im better and more focused than ever but damn society didn’t make it easy for me. There is so much stigma attached that we need to drop. We should be a society that encourages people to openly seek what makes them feel internally stronger or healed. Some1 reaching out shouldn’t be deemed a burden or a damaged individual. They should be praised as brave and in tune. Drop the shaming of others. YOU COULD SAVE THEIR LIFE. Drop the shaming of YOURSELF. You aren’t alone. You aren’t broken. You are journeying. We love You and we commend Your self care journey with great admiration. TOGETHER. We Are. (Ps 72% of lgbtqpia individuals are estimated to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. So let your friends know that You are there for them! It’s a simple way to make a safe space to heal!) #NoMoreHiding #mentalhealthawareness #lgbtq #comingout #lovewins #genderqueer #memesdaily 🎥@connor_landhauser w/ @coryw4de @robertgarrettsmith @sm0lsnek filmed inside fabulous @thephluidproject

I’m not a boy. I’m not a girl either. I am an I. A Being in a vessel that can not accurately be compared to another Being’s. My genitals are not the same as yours. My kidneys are not the same as yours. My tastebuds are not the same as yours. My nipples are not the same as yours. My toes are not the same as yours. We are not ants. And even they are infinitely different when you look closely. When it comes to labels I let You label me as You see fit. Your definitions are for You to have and they are valid in their own right- You will only know what you allow yourself to know. And if You don’t know me personally it is a natural instinct to fill in the blanks. How You Define me does not Confine me. The label you give me personally does not harm me- it does not enrage me. It does not cause me to lose sleep. It does not cause me to question myself. I have detached from the responsibility to make You feel a certain way or adhere to certain language around me. I’m using that energy to focus on just existing in the best light for me. For You. For us. For them. The only thing You need to know about me if You feel I am an alien thing is simple “I come in Peace”. So please let me be in such as well. I promise I’m likely not a sign of “the end of days” and even if I were and you’re correct then don’t panic. Isn’t the afterlife for believers like You supposed to be perfection? 😉 Ps this side by side was one of the first ever made and it just hit 10 MILLION CIRCULATIONS today! 🎉 🎉 🎉 #IamI #CleanUpOnAisle7 #lgbtq #genderqueer #genderisthematrix #lovewins #BodiesArentComparable #SayYesToTheDress #youmissedaspot
