My self-summary
I have nostalgia for places that were never real...

I also have nostalgia for pineapple upside down cakes, which are a different sort of unreal.

You can meet me with your passions and ideals, or maybe just your favorite late night playlists and dessert recipes. I'm sure we'll find something in common.

I.
I was born and raised in New Orleans (I'm guessing that's the reason I have a childlike enthusiasm for festivity). I also just moved back to the city after spending a decade away. I don't know many people here and I'm looking to change that.

II.
I'm attracted to ideas as well as people. Queer(ish) and a switch. Just consider me fluid (like the paint on your brush).

III.
Words like "eschatology" sounds like candy in my mouth.
_______________________________________________________________________
Let's get this part out of the way:

Monogamy is not something I can or want to do.

If you're okay with this, and/or want to be friends (because I'm also looking for more friends right now), read on.
What I’m doing with my life
IV. enumerating.

V. asking you to join me on the dance floor.

listening to/eating/dancing salsa...

finding my role in radical, queer, anti-racist, feminist networks.

I'm working at your pricey local food co-op
but
I still like to get lost in lost places.
________________________________________________________________

I create storytelling projects. For a year or two, I made a new piece every week; a piece being a new performance involving myself and an instrument. Sometimes I make more exciting pieces with other musicians/performers. I'm currently working on creating a podcast. Ask me more about it. I'm always looking for folk interested in collaborating.
The first things people usually notice about me
My darker than white skin. Do you really think it's my eyes? (I do have nice eyes, though).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Unrelated bits for conversation starters:
-I've fasted for political and non-political reasons.
-I'm an atheist sympathetic to spirituality and i read tarot
-I often wonder about the re-invention of sexuality, gender, information.
You should message me if
I tend to value kind people; elusive, cynical types; and the eccentric.

The more of the following, the better:
a)you're playful
b) you enjoy theory and/or art.
c)you have made with your life a world of enchantment,
and you want to enchant me a bit with that world.

d) wouldn't mind going out in public in gender discord

*be upfront. I hang out with people I'm attracted to, but I don't pursue everyone I hang out with. A lot of my closest friends are exes or current partners. Friendship is totally a viable option that I respect and value.
