    This insight is interesting to me- totally makes sense that being queer or racially diverse colors the way you see a city:

    "As a queer, visibly gender non-conforming person, I think I'm aware of city-space in a different way. There are spaces that I don't feel comfortable in, where I feel exposed, and where my anxiety increases. At the same time, there are spaces that people like me have carved out for themselves that wouldn't exist without the cover of a bustling metropolis. "

      I think this extends to not just those of different genders or races but to society as a whole. I'm comfortable in more spaces around my city than my spouse, but I am 6ft3in and she's 1ft smaller.

      Body type, age, any demographic really; these things will change how we view and interact with different elements of a given city.

        Great point. I didn't think of that. Makes complete sense. Makes me wonder if the Tiny House movement is really inclusive of everyone.
