My name is Beck Bauman. I’m a music-loving, queer enby who loves to read, hike, paint, and spend time with friends. I also love to cook, especially for friends—community bonds strengthen over food or a good cup of tea. Writing is a way for me to work through things, so I blog about my experiences as a person living with depression and anxiety, working through religious trauma, and other things. I grew up Mennonite and still have many connections to Christian communities, though I no longer identify as Christian. If I can change someone’s mind or help someone going through something similar by writing about my experiences, that’s great too!
