Iimay Ho lives in Washington, D.C., where she practices vipassana (insight) meditation in the Buddhist tradition.
"My queerness and spirituality feel like two sides of the same coin, or very much interrelated." she says. "Queerness at its core is both being in the world in a different way than what’s expected, and articulating the possibilities of our lives... Spiritual practice feels very similar to me, in that it's about tapping into our core values or our deepest sense of self.
