what do you do besides modelling?

i host a show streamed on youtube called widows radio, i perform sometimes and i'm part of a multi-disciplinary collective of artists and activists

who are your lgbtqia+ role models?

i don't see role models, but my friends amaze me and inspire me with their love, creativity and chats

what makes you get out of bed in the morning?

food!!! friends, lakes in the summer and appreciating that i am living in a place where i feel safe, this makes me want to live my life 100%. i come from a place where there is a high amount of femicides, hate crimes against queer people and an authoritarian state

anything else you want people to know?

i wish western people would start to work on anti imperialist and anti racist actions. their privilege comes from other's oppression. the passivity and over-consumption makes them responsible and verbal accountability is not enough
