We asked Miki a few questions...
Funny thing is, back when I was a closeted queer high school kid, I had an entire YouTube channel dedicated to songs I wrote about/for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team. It’s a pretty surreal experience to now be openly talking about my queerness and music with the players I used to write those songs about. Younger me would not have believed you if you told them I’d be doing this. I am forever a stan of the team.
As it comes to how I express my gender, I’m also challenging norms there too. I just got top surgery back in March and chose to not keep my nipples. It’s interesting how not having nipples bothers people. I think the idea that we can all appear different than what we’re told we can be is such a foreign thought to people. I got comments that were like “all humans have nipples, it’s not a gender thing”. Like, and? To me top surgery was a way to feel more in tune with my gender but not keeping my nipples was just what felt right to me. Whenever I pictured my ideal chest I never pictured it with nipples. Honestly, having nipples like a cis man was what deterred me from getting the surgery for a while. Having a flat chest was what I wanted but not in that way. It was scary to realize I didn’t want to keep my nipples because that’s such a foreign concept to our society. But I don’t have a single regret and I love my nipple-less trans chest.
