00:04
Really, like, nightlife...
00:06
Nightlife people, I feel
00:08
that's like what's sort of drew me into the idea of
00:13
wanting to interact with fashion in a way.
00:16
I saw people living it and loving it and engaging and
00:21
I'd be obsessed.
00:22
I came out really, well not really, really young
00:25
but I came out,
00:26
like 14.
00:28
I started sneaking into clubs
00:31
and Sophia Lamar let me into my first couple,
00:34
Club Lux where Electroclash used to happen.
00:37
I was going there my mom said something like,
00:40
"You know be careful because gays can
00:42
sometimes be manipulative."
00:44
I was like, what the hell does that mean?
00:46
I was like, that's so not true, none of them are like that.
00:48
And she was like,
00:48
"How would you know?"
00:49
And I was like, because I am gay.
00:50
She cried and then the next day, she rented
00:52
[snaps fingers] Paris Is Burning for me.
00:54
So at 14, the next day
00:56
I was, like, on Paris Is Burning.
