Welcome to my portfolio! My name is Margaux Carmel, I use they/them/theirs pronouns, and I’m currently a senior Women’s and Gender Studies major at SUNY Geneseo. Some of my social identities include being white, nonbinary, bisexual, and disabled.
I was inspired to create Identity for All because of my personal experience in high school with my identity. When I came out as bisexual in the spring of 2016, I only had a few people to talk about my experiences with – my friends. When a group of my friends and I started our high schools gay-straight alliance, it was the first time we had a space devoted solely to social identity, particularly gender and sexuality. Outside of that club and that group of people, I felt isolated. I don’t wish that upon my worst enemy.
That’s why I created Identity for All – to bring resources and a space to learn and explore social identity to high schoolers, particularly those in rural areas with very little public transportation. I wanted to take what I have learned in my past three years of college and my past two years of my Women’s and Gender Studies major and bring it to those who need to hear it most.
