My name is Mason Kahokumalamalaikamaluhialani Somay Davis Lorin. I am a mixed mahu (trans) moc. My name, given to me by my kupuna - my elder, is translated as the star the shines in heavenly peace. This is what I strive to live up to everyday -- to stay humble and peaceful.
I am a son, an older brother, a partner, and a friend. These other aspects of my identity are just as meaningful because I'm not self-made. I have had the privilege of having an over-whelming support system and I have been able to be with the help of family, both given and chosen.
I am still making moves toward seeing myself the way I've always wanted to be seen, but I'm more myself than ever before - constantly reflecting, understanding, and growing.
