Matthew Shepard’s poem above is a powerful reminder that we all contain multitudes. We are not defined or confined by one label, but instead, get to decide for ourselves the many things we are in this world.

This June, the Matthew Shepard Foundation co-sponsored the inaugural Queer-Iderness event at the Colorado History Center and invited attendees to share their own “I Am” poems. Scroll through the anonymized entries, and share your own “I Am” reflection in the comments below.
