Sexuality & Gender Identity Cupcakes:

Cupcakes with Pride Flags for different Sexualities and Gender Identities.

The idea for these cupcakes came from my fascination with Gender Identity and Sexuality.

I do believe all kinds of Sexualities and Gender Identities exist, simply because everyone is unique and experiences things differently...

 

The Sexualities/Gender Identities are from top left to bottom right:

Genderqueer, Demisexual, Skoliosexual, Autochorissexual, Intersex, Genderfluid, Asexual, Homosexual, Transgender, Bisexual, Neutrois, Pansexual

EDIT (19.10.2017): Intersex refers to biological sex but it can be a gender identity as well.

Genderqueer, Genderfluid and Neutrois all fall under the Non-binary umbrella. Binary genders would be woman and man. 

Non-binary can fall under the Transgender umbrella, since trans (as opposed to cis) means the person does not identify with the gender assigned to them at birth. Not all transgender people are also non-binary!

Demisexual and Autochorissexual are both part of the Asexuality Spectrum! These cupcakes were part of my coming out (kind of), which is why I included so many asexual identities. 

The most common definition for Bisexuality has shifted to a more inclusive definition. Instead of referring to the two binary genders it is now used for 'experiencing sexual attraction to my own gender and other genders'. This definition is very similar to Pansexuality where gender is more or less irrelevant.

Also Sexuality does not equal romantic attraction! Sexual attraction aka Sexuality overlaps with romantic attraction for a lot of people but they are not one and the same. Most of the sexualities listed here can also be applied to romantic attraction e.g.: Aromantic, Biromantic, etc.

 

Language is constantly evolving so this might be completely wrong in another three years. This info was compiled by me to the best of my ability. I am not an expert!  :EDIT (19.10.2017)


used the flags that came up first and the most while searching the internet, some are not official approved flags, but I took what I could get. I also had to limit myself to 12 different pride flags, just to make it fit the amount of cupcakes...

 

The flags themselves are hand painted, every single one, which was not at all fun and cost a few hours of my weekend. The vanilla Cupcakes chose to give me a lot of trouble as well, but I was very excited about this project so I pushed through...

 

I also forgot to add the pink hearts to two of the Skoliosexual flags, which I am very sorry for! I just forgot since I had to wait till the other colours were mostly dry and I tried to finish the cupcakes late in the evening after baking and painting all of this... (I was a bit frustrated at that point)
