My self-summary
At the moment I am interested in dating and making new friends, so let's meet up for coffee (or tea as I don't drink coffee) and see where things go. I have no preference regarding race, ethnicity, sexual or gender orientation in my partners or friends. She/her pronouns are fine.

I say what I mean and mean what I say.

Activism and politics are my passion.

I am happiest when I am wandering in a park or garden with my camera or hanging with friends playing board games.

I often find myself looking at nature with childlike wonder. If we didn't laugh at the small things we would cry when faced with the overwhelming suffering in this world. I choose to laugh and ride every carousel I lay eyes on.
What I’m doing with my life
My new passion is learning to cook. I recently joined a CSA. Kolrabi and kale chips are my new favorites.

I work as a therapist on the adolescent unit of a psychiatric hospital with a focus on working with trans youth.

On the whole I love to spend time with my cat Ginger, my family, friends, the newspaper, and a good book.
I’m really good at
Winning at miniature golf, i always get the highest score....hmm.

Also: making people laugh, photography, cross-stitch, giving massages, and deep conversations about politics, mental health, sexuality, film, or nonsense.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glasses, curly hair, and smile.

I look a lot younger than my age though I have an old soul.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A favorite book?! I could go on forever about that; but I love books on history and politics because I want to understand the world in order to change it. Novels and memoirs nourish my soul. There is so much to be learned and explored by opening the pages of a good book.

Some of my favorite books include Snuff, Nervous Conditions, The German Ideology, this Common Secret: my journey as an abortion doctor, sexuality and socialism, The Lord of the Rings.

I like movies, just not horror films because I will scream in my chair the whole

Yup, I watch TV. My favorites are How to Get Away with Murder, Game of Thrones, Big Love, Coupling, Sherlock, and Dr. Who. I grew up watching and will always love my 1980s and 1990s Britcoms, M*A*S*H, and Monty Pythons Flying Circus.

I like whatever music is playing, especially if I can dance to it.

I am also a huge fan of theater, musicals, opera, and ballet. Some of my favorite shows include: Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Wolf Hall, Macbeth, Hamlet, Something Rotten!, Les Miserables, and My Fair Lady. I adore Shakespeare and am working of reading and viewing all the plays.

I like to explore different culinary experiences by trying out restaurants that serve authentic ethnic food as one part of learning about other cultures. My favorites at the moment are Thai, South Indian, and Greek food.
Six things I could never do without
sunshine, politics, human contact, a daring novel, love, a walk in the woods
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics and the incredible human capacity for solidarity and compassion.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after a busy week.

If I don't have plans I usually try and catch a movie at a local theater; I am lucky to live near a bunch of great mainstream and art cinemas.

When I have plans I am usually hanging out with friends, catching a play in NYC or locally, happy hour with my coworkers, or catching up on reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sit in the shower to meditate.
