Story of My Name: Myke

When people started calling me Myke and Mykell, it felt calming. I felt seen. I felt heard. I felt recognized and understood.

FreeState Legal Project is proud to share another interview from the Story of My Name Project. The Story of My Name Project is a collection of stories from transgender and/or gender non-conforming individuals about the meaning of their names. This project is an opportunity to celebrate their stories and lives, and to share why it is important to have a name that affirms your gender identity. To read Myke’s story, click here.
