Dancing machine, crowd surfing queen and star of a new documentary, Lucy, about my life as a trans woman.
The main way my life has changed since the release of the film is that I now embrace my identity as a trans woman. I think before I was quite content to just live my life as a Lucy. I’ve been very fortunate with how my life has panned out and now I feel like I have a responsibility to embrace my trans identity in order to help people who are facing similar issues.
I think the judges said that the honesty and openness with which I told my story was what clinched it when it came to winning the prize for ‘Best Reality Performance’
Friends, music, dancing.
You should meet my friends, a collection of the most talented, creative and loving nutbags you’ll ever have the pleasure of knowing. I’m never more happy than when I’m dancing on stage with a bunch of drag queens at Savage, Sink the Pink or the NYC Downlow.
Ignorance and intolerance.
I’m into neon in a big way at the moment. It’s bold and unapologetic, I think that’s an accurate reflection of my character.
Everything will work out. You can’t even imagine how much happiness is ahead of you.
I hope she’s still dancing!
