Last night was an amazing closing night to a completely sold out run of #ReadyToBeCommitted at @thebeechman and the best part was getting to embarrass @gus_lanza on his birthday!! Thanks to my amazing Beechman fam for a great run and helping make my boo’s special day special. The best part is when he runs away at the end.

🌈 I wanted to share my story about what PRIDE means to me. I was teased at school, called all the usual derogatory names like fag, queer, etc...... this I could deal with. It was generic school boy behavior, they didn’t understand me so they used words that were insulting and hurtful. I was never scared or threatened, I mostly hung out with girls and they loved me so I had my people. It was a few experiences later that really affected me for most of my life. I was on a train coming back from hair school, I was maybe 17 or 18 years old and a group of 6 or so men aggressively pushed me around, spat on me, held me on the floor and called me names while making advances. This truly terrified me. Weirdly I never told anyone for years as I was so ashamed. I had another similar experience on the street a year later, as well as more phobic slurs from strangers through the years. I began to recoil and wanted to be invisible. I changed from a creative aspiring hair stylist with wacky hair to wanting to hide. I was ashamed to be . I thought if I hid my ity as much as possible, I’d never be victimized again. So for years I would only go out in black with a baseball cap on and only dress or behave how I really wanted to, or be “” in a safe environment, where I knew I wouldn’t be a target. I know people have been through way worse and have horrific stories. For me, this is not a sob story, it’s more about how important #pride is. I was lucky, when I came out, my family were supportive, but I’ve always found it crazy that a few strangers could effect my life so much. Even now, years later, I still have some in certain places, but I choose to stick my 🖕🏻up at those haters. Maybe it’s something small, like a picture of me in a pink robe being “camp” on Instagram or just walking down the street with my head held high. To me, love is love and as Lady Gaga once said “it only takes 1 person” wrong quote 😜 “no matter straight or bi, transgendered life I’m on the right track baby we were born to survive”. So the moral of my story is, don’t ever let anyone take your pride, they’ll try, but they can't.
