Tomboy stories ( tomboystories.org ) is a website my friend Emily created and runs. It’s her baby and is starting to get some real recognition. I thought there would be a big audience for it on tumblr, so here it is. If you have a tomboy story of your own don’t hesitate to submit it! you can do so on here by clicking the submit button up top or you can submit to Emily’s email firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is her about from her blog:
Tomboy Stories began after watching “Tomboy” the movie. I was writing a movie review, and was told that I should begin it with a story of my own. It took me forever to write about myself, and my own feelings, but in doing so I realized how relatable and personal the movie was for me. And it wasn’t just me. Writing my own story evolved into Tomboy Stories as a project. When I went to write my story, about one particular experience, I couldn’t immediately think of one. Being a tomboy was such a pervasive part of my childhood, that it was genuinely difficult for me to think of a moment groundbreaking enough to write about. Something remarkable enough that people would actually be interested in reading. It wasn’t until I realized that I didn’t have to write about some revolutionary moment- rather something that was honest and relatable- that I was able to fully write my story. I realized that Tomboy Stories is a way to share our common experiences. Whether it be about your experiences being a tomboy, or the impact that one has had on you. Tomboy Stories is a collection of personal narratives written by people of all ages, races, sexual orientations, and gender identities as well as being an open forum for relevant discussions. Everyone has a Tomboy Story. What’s yours?
