Do you feel that it was a good thing you were friends before you were lovers?
Evan: Hell yeah, it made us so comfortable.
Kenzie: Yeah, but even when we met, we were instantly comfortable.
E: That’s because you did a documentary photo project on me. *laughs*
K: Oh yeah, I had to do a project on someone I didn’t know, and I didn’t actually want to do it of Evan because I knew I had a crush on him. But I did, and then when I presented the photos to my class, everyone was commenting things like, “Wow, you can tell he has such a connection to you” and “You guys look like you have such intense chemistry,” it was so embarrassing.
K: Because I hadn’t even started flirting with him yet!
E: Oh, you hadn’t started flirting with me yet? That is such a lie. *laughs*
K: Okay, okay, well, it wasn’t a thought I had fully entertained.
Do you feel you are in touch with your sexuality, individually or together?
K: I thought I was asexual in high school while in my prior relationship because I didn’t actively want sex, but now *laughs* I’m definitely interested in sex. Evan and I just get along so well, and we openly communicate.
E: Yeah, the first time we hooked up, I had like a questionnaire mentally. I asked for consent obviously, but I also asked questions just to gauge her interest in things.
K: He still asks, which is so nice because I think when you're with someone for a long time, you can get into the habit of assuming they may like or want things.
E: Yeah, and we’re also pretty verbal, but it's always super sweaty because this room doesn't have AC. *laughs* - Kenzie & Evan (she/her & he/him)
