My self-summary
Hello people of Okcupid! I am originally from London, but I will be living in LA from March-September this year and would like some help and also to meet people. here are some things-

I am a performance and cabaret artist,so...
*do you do similar things and want to collaborate and make new work? yay!*
*Do you have suggestions of venues/spaces/nights that I could contact about performing at?*
*Suggestions of residencies and workshops for weirdo performance artists going on in the next few months, in LA and surrounding areas? Or even further afield !*

Also,
*Suggestions of political direct action and volunteering opportunities, groups i could get involved with, lefty, queer pro-choice etc*

*Tell me all the queer/feminist/DIY/art stuff in town i should know about*

New Friends plzzzz!! Would love to meet people to hang out with, go to queer dance parties, art shows, nature adventures, eat wonderful things, whatever..

Open to dating too, jsyk I am currently seeing someone non-monogamously.
I try and practice relationship anarchy.

Oh and, my birthday is on March 5th and I was thinking of going to the Mykki Blanco show, are you going and can i tag along? :D

At least 80% snazzier than most.
Queer femme into all genders.
Feminist killjoy.

What I’m doing with my life
