My name is Astra Mie West

Most people call me Mie, I'm okay with either Astra or Mie.

Mie is pronounced like "my" as in "those are my books" or "have you met my friend, Mie?"

Easy way to remember: Mie like pie.

I'm non-binary and transgender 🏳️‍🌈

My gender is not entirely male or female and I've known since I was young.

After meeting other transgender people as an adult, I started taking steps to transition.

If you knew me before I transitioned, nice to meet you for a second time! 🙋
