Hi! My name is Lindsey. I've been in Portland for 2 years now; I love it here! I'm looking for dates, sex, parties, stories, food. I love talking about political and philosophical theory. Atheist. I am queer/bi/pansexual, and doing that whole poly thing. Gender roles are fucked. I like cats.
I am working on getting to a point in my life where everything I do contributes to my happiness.
I don't sleep much.
Dancing. I like to go to places like Fez, C.C. Slaughters, Boxxes, Goodfoot, Crystal Ballroom, Mississippi Studios, Holocene, and any 80s or queer dance nights. :)
I'm passionate about community organizing and social justice. Let's change the world together!
Annoying my mom.
