23 year-old, black, bisexual, female of trans experience, Raven Carlyle. Raven is a Tarot Card Reader. "Oh my womanhood was forged in the fires of self acceptance, tempered by desire and brought up in a home of love, raised in fear ..." Raven is a woman of trans experience living in New Orleans, USA. 'I feel unsafe every time I walk out that door. But I also feel as if nobody is ... I've been thrown in predicaments and been put in predicaments where I've had to fight others and whether that be verbally, mentally, physically. I've always seemed to come out on top." However public spaces are not always dangerous and she does not live in fear. "More often than not I believe that people seem to be fascinated by my existence. Fascinated, baffled, they don't really seem to understand how I could exist. Or why I exist. But, as soon as they see me they know that I am real."
