I host the every-other-monthly queer kinky Denver play party Spanktrum. Check out http://spanktrum.wordpress.com for more info or message me. Next party is June 20th!
I'm a passionate, progressive open minded person. I am sassy, feisty, endearing, awkward, amusing, filter-less, intellectual, witty, and much more. I am involved in a lot of anti-racist and anti-oppression work. I will call you out on your systemic and linguistic racism, ableism, ciscentrism, heterocentrism, sizeism, etc and expect others to do the same when I fuck up.
I graduated from Colorado College with a degree in Sociology and a minor in German and spent time abroad in Lueneburg, Germany, going to the University there. I have my Master's in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University. I just started working on my PhD in Social Work at the University of Denver fall 2013. Main interests include looking at discrimination/harassment/victimization in trans*/GNC communities, looking at able bodied privilege/creating sex neutral or positive sex education for communities of disability, and feminist identified sex worker communities. I also have high hopes of learning ASL fluently in the near future.
I love love love to read. I own over a thousand books, and have read the majority of them multiple times. If you can't get a hold of me, it is likely that I'm somewhere reading. I also like art galleries, museums, nice dinners (total foodie who has been vegetarian for 21+ years), volunteering, and getting all dressed up. Intelligent conversation turns me on that almost anything else.
I love to [cuddle]. A LOT. I actually identify as queer, in that I like people in general...however, I'm primarily attracted to women (trans, cis and other), trans masculine folks and those that don't fit in boxes (gender queer folk, fem men, butches, bois, trans guys, etc). I am a Femme...no, I'm not straight. I'm sick of being invisible.
I'm a self-admitted choco-holic. Dark or bittersweet is the best. In addition, I love to cook, though I'll admit, I do bake out of a box. I own a pasta maker, a fondue pot, cheese slicers, among other random kitchen things.
I'm a vegetarian, but not the preachy type; don't tell me what I should eat, and I won't tell you what you shouldn't.
I'm always up for trying something new, and can be ...eccentric...at times, but am a very caring person. I'm a romantic at heart... but one that is easy to please and not traditional. Just a message on my pillow or a cupcake on a tough day is enough to make me swoon.
