His purpose in life is to further expand our understanding of what it means to be human, to create a safer, more accepting and inclusive future for every human identity. Lex is an advocate for equal rights for all human identities, and initiatives that amplify, empower and elevate LGBTQIA+ identities in the world. He writes about identity and gender with an aim to help others explore their own identity without judgment.
In 2019, Lex combined his purpose and passion for equality to create Alt Pronouns, a Human Identity Brand empowering the Queer community. Alt Pronouns makes Radically Queer™ Gender Free LGBTQ+ Pride Apparel that champions Queer identity and sparks conversations to advance equality and acceptance. He further expanded the project to launch Queerist, an LGBTQ+ community platform and publication. He ended the project in Oct 2021. Read the full story on what led Lex to shut down Alt Pronouns here.
