Hey Virgo Season participants. So far all the season have been intense but Virgo season feels smooth as I literally organized the hell out of my closet and have been catching up with work like posting this blog post. The end of August was the worst so I am sorta healing it out and picking up the peaces. On August 25th my biological sister Alice passed away and it shook up my world and I am very saddened by her death. I am going to say it really sucks when you don't get access to proper healthcare because of money. My sister in her own words told me that they never offered her a cure just day to day survival in which she felt like a guinea pig. She did not deserve to go out like that! I am going to miss my sister always calling me and being in my business and telling me family tea. I am going to miss her bad ass cancer woman behavior. Her slick talk. Talking on the phone for hours and when she would visit me as a kid. When she went through this phase of piercing everyone's nose in the community and she called me as a kid and said for me to ask my mom if she could pierce my nose and my mom said no and I was all upset because I wanted my cool big sister to pierce my nose. I am going to miss Her power but most of all her love. So when you see me hug me because I am still very much mourning the loss of my big sister. Glad for family love and support. Family is all of y'all giving me kind words and hugs without stabbing my back. Can you dig that?
RIP My sister.
Thank you for letting me vent. So here are the places that you can meet me at on the dancefloor.
On Sept 8th I will be at Classic Car West performing to raise funds for The Oakland LGBTQ Community Center and The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. An event called Punx Saturdays which will occur from 3pm-10pm on Saturday the 8th of September! This is the only place where I will be performing at for Oakland pride!
My set is at 7pm so come ready to dance.
So on the 9th of September I launch my very first tiny pop up storefront. I am literally stepping out in to the unknown on this one. I have been vending my handmade merch out of a suitcase for some years now and now finally a actual storefront and I am excited about this opportunity and their will be champagne and tiny treats to celebrate. So if you would like to come shop please RSVP at this email by the evening of 9/8 at email@example.com. I have a special guest who will be blinging out everyones teeth. My friend Shamar will be in the house with his tooth gems. Check him out on Instagram..
