Thank you for publishing this :) It is beautifully written and very moving. I also found it relatable on so many levels even if our life experiences are obviously different (white queer trans man here), mostly around topics like growing up in a world where the very existence of people like you is unthinkable, love, shame, bodies and sexuality. Reading your memoir was both food for thought and balm for the heart and soul. Thank you again.

A downloadable memoir
RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE: read online now at npw.marinakittaka.com
New Private Window is a memoir in the form of a website. It follows Marina Kittaka (developer of Anodyne and Even the Ocean) through childhood and young adulthood, looking at the interactions between her experiences of faith, gender, and sex.
Certain links are meant to be opened in a private web browser window, as a meditative act--a reflection on shame, exploration, and intimacy.

Thank you for reading and commenting! I'm so glad to know that this is continuing to be meaningful to people
Thank you for sharing! I really enjoyed this and connected on a lot of levels, including being That Person who was type-cast in all the school theatre productions... :P a lot of what you said here was very meaningful, and I loved the private window mechanics/symbolism. 💖
Thank you for writing this.
