I find these without context to be very clunky. A brief bio of "Griffin does xyz and in his spare time plays jazz keytar" flows much better and better represents the richness of one's life. I'm slightly biased on this issue as I'm very visibly trans. While people will naturally make assumptions about my gender/sex (no big deal), some focus on that particular piece of my life instead of what I'm actually doing.
