Shoe: 11.5 mens // 14 womens
Preferred pronoun: They/Them
When did you start wearing/becoming your art: I have toyed around with drag for quite a while, but my aesthetic really started to become solidified about six months ago. I decided I wanted to take drag more seriously and with learning new skills in school, (I am currently studying fashion design at Parsons) I have been able to fully bring to life this character that is an extension of who I am.
What is your favorite kind of pizza: Pepperoni! But not New York pizza, I love the pizza from back home in Buffalo, NY. The crust is much thicker, lots of sauce and a plethora of pepperonis
Do you identify with labels: If so which one/s: I identify as queer, gender fluid, gay, and most importantly HUMAN.
How young or old are you: 21 yrs
What color socks are you wearing right now: black
Manhattan or Brooklyn: Manhattan
Favorite piece you made: One of my favorite looks I have made was a floor length dress made out of paper with stereotypical male and female body parts all mis-matched together to create a full new body. A big part of my aesthetic is mixing and blurring the lines of gender binaries and this look was classic Phallic Cunt.
Subway/Cab/or Uber and do you fit: I walk a lot of the time, but if it is too far then subway.
Your look inspirations: First is David Wojnarowicz, who was an artist in NYC in the 80's/early 90's. His work has a lot to do with the development of personal iconography. I am a big fan of integrating personalized symbols into my work. David also produced work relating to the AIDS crisis while it was happening, when many felt afraid to speak out about the epidemic. This kind of activism integrated into art really speaks to me. I feel as a designer/performer/artist it is ones duty to address difficult social issues to begin a dialogue, with the intention of creating some sort of societal shift. My second inspiration is Leigh Bowery. My drag doesn't necessarily conform to looking like a woman. Leigh Bowery's looks were transcendent of gender and he was always creating new looks that not only were shocking and/or glamorous, (depending on your viewpoint) but his looks also utilized the device of storytelling, which is the mark of a true artist if you ask me!
