Kai is a lesbian, and his parents are cool with that. Kai is also non-binary, and that’s harder for them to accept

Twenty-six-year-old Kai studied at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and he likes theatre, singing and playing the piano. In addition, he considers himself a non-binary lesbian and uses masculine pronouns. This means he had to come out on two levels. When Kai was thirteen, he fell in love with a girl for the first time.

Fifteen-year-old Maku knew he wasn’t feeling good in a girl’s body from an early age. There’s one thing he can say for sure - he is not a girl and he doesn’t wish to be one. Nevertheless, everyone knows him as a girl and so they keep addressing him as such. However, Maku’s closest friends address him with masculine pronouns and some of them use neutral pronouns, with which he also sometimes identifies. Maku identifies as nonbinary and it was the theatre that made him first realize, that there is something different about him.
