Indigo, whom identifies being a вЂњnon-binary demigirlвЂќ (meaning a person who partially, although not wholly, identifies as feminine, and would rather utilize the pronoun вЂњtheyвЂќ), is just a simultaneously disconcerting and presence that is captivating. Whenever theyвЂ™re perhaps perhaps not speaking, their blue eyes have vacant, glassy appearance and their face is completely blank, nearly as if theyвЂ™re powered down. They appear wary once I request an interview. But, after every relevant question i ask, Indigo pauses, smiles, breathes profoundly as if in serene meditation, after which talks with great feeling and strength.
вЂњI think IвЂ™m changing the whole world,вЂќ says Indigo. вЂњIвЂ™m creating long- and short-term community in which individuals can understand their truest selves, and certainly will get closer and nearer to that core of self.вЂќ As Indigo speaks, their gestures are just like party techniques; they circle their fingers over one another as the saying goes вЂњcloser and closer,вЂќ miming this is.
