She/Her, He/Him

Image 1: Photo from behind of a light skin South Asian person wearing only a black rain jacket that just reaches the thighs, with the hood up. The jacket has Fuck The Colonizer and Aazadi painted on the back in green and purple acrylic paint respectively. The person is photographed indoors infront of a red brick wall with a black sofa-bed against it. There is a clock on the wall.

Image 2: Photo of a potted fresh lavender plant. A person is behind the plant, looking down with their arms up as they tighten a traditional necklace behind their neck. It is a light skin South Asian person with very short hair. The person is barely visible behind the lavender plant with mainly their eyebrow and underarm hair showing. A golden doorknob on a white door is visible in the background.
