Farid Yusof is a student of the world. They speak with Charna about the way culture impacts our freedom of self-expression and how they use their art as a resource to find healing. Farid’s travels were a mechanism for finding themselves and they use social media as a tool for coming out as gender nonbinary while quarantining with their conservative family. This conversation highlights how developing rituals around self-care can help anyone thrive, even in isolation, during the pandemic.
Farid Yusof (He/They) grew up queer in the small religious nation of Brunei. In trying to find freedom in self-expression, they decided to pursue the nomad life in 2013 and traveled the world. With all the self-healing and wisdom they gained through this experience, they now identify as nonbinary and facilitate heart-sharing circles online with the mission to reconnect people to their hearts and to their authenticity.
In addition to holding heart space, Farid (art pseudonym Faridunia) also works as a freelance print artist, creating work with themes around spiritual growth & healing, sex, and kink liberation, pushing gender norms, LGBTQ+ rights, and the concept non-duality.
