ʻO nā mea hana kiʻi ʻoniʻoni ʻo Atlanta ʻo Johnson Johnson ka nui o nā mea. ʻO ka mea kākau a me ka luna hoʻomalu transfem ʻeleʻele loa i lawe iaʻu me ke kahaha i ko lākou noho ʻana i lalo e kamaʻilio pū me aʻu ma ka moʻolelo no Horror Pride Month 2021.

I ka hapanui o nā ninaninau, keu hoʻi inā he ʻike ʻole kāu ʻoihana, aia kahi ʻano o ka loaʻa-i-ʻike-kahi manawa āu e manaʻo nei kekahi i kekahi. ʻAʻole me ND.

"E noʻonoʻo ana wau e pili ana i ka manaʻo o ke kuʻikahi ma ke ʻano he koho," wahi a Johnson. “ʻ saylelo ka poʻe, 'ʻUa koho ʻoe i kaʻiʻi. Ua koho ʻoe i ke kāne he; ua koho ʻoe i kēia a i ʻole. ' Manaʻo wau ua koho ʻia. ʻAʻole au i manaʻo ua koho wau e lilo i a i ʻole wau, akā ua koho wau i koʻu hauʻoli. Ua koho wau e ala i ke kakahiaka a nānā pehea wau e makemake ai e nānā a ʻike pehea wau e makemake ai a lilo i ka mea aʻu e makemake ai a ʻaʻole wau e ʻae i nā manaʻo a haʻi a i ʻole nā ​​hoʻokolokolo a i ʻole ke kūlana kaiaulu e hoʻoholo i kaʻu. e lilo ana wau naʻu. "

ʻIke ʻoe iaʻu.

"Kūkulu ʻia ka moemoeā ʻAmelika ma luna o kēlā," wahi a lākou i hoʻomau ai. “Kūlike a make paha, a koho wau i ka make. Pepehi i ka likelike iaʻu. ʻAʻole kōkua ia i kekahi. ʻAʻole naʻe wau i manaʻo he kōkua ia i ka poʻe pololei. Makemake wau e like me ka pololei, a i ʻole ka pono e pili i kēia manaʻo o ka pololei, ua pepehi i nā kaiāulu. Ua luku ʻia nā hanauna holoʻokoʻa o ka poʻe. ʻAʻole wau i loko. "

I kēlā manawa, ua ʻike wau e pili ana mākou i kahi o nā kamaʻilio kamaʻilio ʻoiaʻiʻo o ka makahiki, a aia wau ma aneʻi no ia.

I kēia manawa, he manawa kēlā me kēia peʻahi weliweli, maʻamau i kahi kiʻi ʻoniʻoni, i hoʻolilo iā lākou i mea peʻahi weliweli. ʻO kēlā makaʻu mua ia; ʻo ka manawa mua e holo i lalo i kou iwikuamoʻo a manaʻo ʻoe i kahi mea like me ka weliweli.

I loko o kēia Johnson e like me mākou āpau, a hoʻomanaʻo ka mea paʻi kiʻi i kekahi mau manawa i kona wā kamaliʻi mua i ka wā i manaʻo ai ʻo ia i ka mea mua. Wikiwiki ʻo ia e kuhikuhi, akā naʻe, ʻaʻole ʻo ia i kānalua no kona palekana, ʻo ka hapanui mahalo iā mama.

“Hoʻomanaʻo wau i ka nānā ʻana ʻO ka Ring i ka piha ʻana o kaʻu mau makahiki ʻehiku a ʻoi paha, ”haʻi mai ʻo Johnson iaʻu. "Ua makaʻu loa wau e hele i waho ke kaikamahine mai ke kīwī a kiʻi iaʻu a nānā koʻu makuahine iaʻu a ʻōlelo," Inā hele mai ʻo ia i loko o kēia hale, loaʻa iā ia ka makuahine makuahine ʻelua hewa ʻole. ' A ua ʻike wau i kēlā manawa e pale ana koʻu makuahine iaʻu i nā koina āpau. Maopopo iaʻu ua maikaʻi au, a laila. E like me, inā i hele mai ʻo ia i koʻu hale, ua hana hewa ʻo ia. ”

Ma hope iki, ua ʻike ʻo Johnson i ke kumu Halloween no ka manawa mua, a maikaʻi ... pono lākou i kahi hōʻoia hou aʻe.

No ka mea paʻi kiʻi e hiki mai ana, ʻaʻole wale ʻo Michael Myers i ʻike ʻia he hiki ʻole ke make a me ka wiwo ʻole i hana ai ʻo ia i kāna mau luku ʻana. ʻAʻole like me kāna poʻe i like me Freddy Krueger, he mea pepehi malū ʻo Myers e ʻimi ana i kāna mea pio a hānai ʻia i loko o nā moeʻuhane e hiki mai ana ma hope o kā Johnson ʻike mua ʻana.

"ʻO kēia ke kumu aloha wau i ka weliweli," i ʻōlelo ʻo ia. "Manaʻo wau he ala maikaʻi loa ka weliweli e kālailai ai i nā makaʻu a me nā hemahema, akā ʻo mākou nō kekahi. ... ʻaʻole paha ʻo egotistical ka ʻōlelo kūpono, akā pili mākou iā mākou iho. Hoʻokumu ka weliweli i kahi kaiapuni kahi e hiki ai iā ʻoe ke hoʻoneʻe i kēlā mau mea. Hiki iā ʻoe ke nānā iā lākou a kālailai. Pouli ke kanaka. Makemake, ʻaʻole hana wale ke kanaka i nā mea pouli, akā hana nā kānaka i nā mea pouli maoli. He paʻakikī e hoʻomaopopo i kēlā i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo maʻamau. No laila e ʻae ka ʻano iā mākou e mākaʻikaʻi i kēlā mau mea. "

I ka ulu ʻana o Johnson ua hiki i ka manawa e hoʻomaka i nā hoʻoholo e pili ana i ka wā e hiki mai ana. He keiki keaka ponoʻī nona ponoʻī, ua kau kona mau maka i kāna hana keaka mele a me ke kākau ʻana i nā mele, akā hoʻokahi ona pilikia. ʻO ka nui o kāna mau manaʻo e like me ka nui loa no kahi kahua. ʻOiai makemake ʻo ia e kākau i nā mea mele a hana i ka hale keaka, aia kahi loli i hiki ke hōʻole ʻia i ke kiʻi ʻoniʻoni i kamaʻilio me ia a ua hele koke ʻo ia i ke Kulanui o North Texas ma Denton e aʻo.

Iā ia e hoʻopau ana i kāna kekelē, ua hoʻoholo ʻo ia ʻo Atlanta maoli kahi āna e makemake ai. Ua kau ka maka i ka Savannah College of Art & Design a no laila, ua kūʻai aku ʻo ia i nā mea āpau i hiki iā ia, hōʻuluʻulu i kāna waiwai, a neʻe akula me kahi hoahānau ma Atlanta i kona hoʻomākaukau ʻana no ka hana grad.

ʻO ia ka manawa i hiolo nā mea āpau.

"Ua loaʻa iaʻu kahi hana ma Waffle House a hana ma laila ma kahi o ʻeono mau mahina a hiki i koʻu hiki ʻole ke lawe hou," wahi a lākou. "A laila ua komo wau i kahi hoʻonohonoho ʻana ma aneʻi. Ua hana wau i kahi moʻo o nā hana ʻoniʻoni a me nā hoa aloha mai ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana i ka kūʻai aku ʻana i ka paʻi pūnaewele i PA-ing ma nā kiʻi ʻoniʻoni. ʻO kēia ka hoʻoholo maikaʻi loa i hiki iaʻu ke hana noʻu iho, a ʻo ka hope makemake wau e pili i nā poʻe ʻeleʻele a ʻo Atlanta ke ʻano he hub no kēlā. No laila, ʻekolu mau makahiki wau ma aneʻi a ke hana nei i nā kiʻi ʻoniʻoni. Hana wau iā lākou pehea a ke makemake wau e hana iā lākou. Ua hoʻokō ʻia nā mea āpau aʻu i manaʻo ai e hoʻokō. ”

Lawe kēia iā ND Johnson i kēia manawa kahi e hana nei i ka hana ʻana i kahi kiʻi ʻoniʻoni i kapa ʻia Ka maikaʻi ke hoʻomohala nei ʻo ia mai kahi kiʻi ʻoniʻoni pōkole o ka manaʻo like e hana nei i nā pōʻai i nā ʻaha i kēia manawa.

Ka maikaʻi hūnā i nā laina laina, kūʻē i ka pilina ma waena o nā kāne a me nā transfems. ʻO ia ka manaʻo i loaʻa iā ia mai ka hele ʻana i ke koleke, akā ʻaʻole hiki iā ia ke hoʻokō ʻia no ka mea ʻaʻole makemake kāna mau hoa papa i ke kiʻi ʻoniʻoni a me kāna leka.

"He papahana kēia e noi ana e haʻi ʻia, no ka mea e hana pinepine pinepine i kēia kumuhana i koʻu ola ponoʻī," wehewehe ʻo Johnson. "Makemake wau e ʻike i nā moʻolelo aʻu e ʻike pinepine ʻole ai. ʻO ka hapanui o nā moʻolelo e pili ana i ka transfems e pili ana i ka hana moekolohe wale nō a i ʻole ka lāʻau lāʻau a i ʻole ka hana ʻino kūloko a me ka hana ʻino kahi i make ai ʻo ia i ka hopena a ke pāʻani paha lākou i nā kupapaʻu ma. Kānāwai & Kauoha ʻo ka hana ʻana o nā kāne cis-hetero iā lākou. ”

Ma muli o kēia, wahi a Johnson, ʻaʻole i huki ʻia ʻo ia i kēia manawa e hana i nā keʻena lumi kahi e nui ai ka poʻe e hoʻoholo e pili ana i kahi kiʻi a pono ʻole.

"Inā e ʻae wau i kahi keʻena hana e kau i ko lākou mau lima ma luna o kaʻu shit, makemake lākou e hoʻololi iā ia," i ʻōlelo ʻo ia. “Me Ka maikaʻi, he papahana kūikawā loa ia iaʻu. Ua hana wau i nā papahana i ka wā ma mua i haʻi wau iaʻu iho ʻaʻole hiki iaʻu ke makaʻala e pili ana. Hāʻawi ʻoe iā ia i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe e hana i kā lākou ʻike. Ua kākau wale ʻoe. ʻAʻole wau makemake e hana i kēia. Naʻu kēia.

"ʻO ka mea aʻu e makemake ai e ʻike, ʻo ka poʻe transʻeleʻele kā mākou koa ponoʻī i kā mākou moʻolelo. Aloha au i ke kaikamahine hope. ʻAʻole wau ʻike i ke kumu hiki ʻole iā ia ke ʻeleʻele a trans. Makemake au e kūʻē i nā mea aʻu i hana ai no nā makahiki. Aia he ton o ka hana ʻino wale no ka hele wāwae ʻana ʻo wai ʻoe e like me ka wahine transʻeleʻele. Ua ukali ʻia wau ma ka home. Ua nīnau ʻia wau i loko o ka lua.

"ʻO ka mea aʻu e makemake ai e hana i kēia kiʻi hoʻoweliweli ke hōʻike nei i nā mea a nā kānaka e hana ai, akā e paipai pū i nā poʻe transfem ʻē aʻe e nānā ma ʻō aku o kēlā. E aʻo e pale aku iā ʻoe iho. Ua aʻo ʻia mākou e nānā i nā kāne no ka pale akā ke hiki lākou i nā mea e hōʻino ai he aha kā mākou e hana ai? ʻO kēlā kukuna. Makemake wau e ʻimi i kēlā mea hou aku, akā ʻo ka hopena, pili maoli ia i ke aʻo ʻana pehea e mālama ai iā ʻoe iho. Ke loaʻa nei kāu mau manawa weliweli, e ʻike pono ʻoe i ka lā aʻe. ʻAʻole nui nā kaikamahine. ʻO kahi o kēlā no ka mea ʻaʻole mākou i aʻo ʻia e pale iā mākou iho. Hiki i nā moʻolelo e like me kēia ke kōkua hou i ka honua. ”

ʻO ka mea leʻaleʻa, manaʻo wau ʻo ND Johnson e hana nei i kēlā. No ka ʻike hou aku e pili ana Ka maikaʻi, ke kiʻi ʻoniʻoni, aloha.
