Sade Bolger is an 18-year-old musician from Vermont who has recently come out as non-binary. Looking Back at Me highlights Sade in relation to their passion for music, their unapologetic authenticity, and their life in Vermont. As part of a genuine effort to influence the future, both online and in person, Sade represents and gives voice to the trans and non-binary people in the world who constantly combat stigma and erasure. Sade’s story embodies the intersectionalitiy between identities, passions, and the places we call home.
