Interview with Boy Radio
How do you describe yourself as an artist? Dancer, performer, model?… what is your favorite role?
As an artist? I would describe myself as pretty bangable
As a Performer? Trustable
Favorite role: versatile
I guess I would also describe myself as fluid for all of those titles. I love being able to adapt myself to any creative atmosphere especially when working with other artists and directors.
New York pride just coming up. Which programs makes you most excited and why?
I’m really excited for the pride march because it makes me think of it’s origins and how many people both of the community and it’s allies come out to watch and to march. This year’s “Everybooty” at BAM is going to be cute too! (http://www.bam.org/everybooty
EVERYBOOTY descends on BAM this Pride weekend for a four-floor, more-is-more art party with the glitteriest critters of the queer art and nightlife worlds. This radical evening of revelry fills the BAM Fisher from basement to rooftop with performances, DJs, installations, readings, booze, and general ruckus, serving up too much as just enough.

Do you have any ideal or dream collaborator?
Not off the top of my head right now…
But there are a few people I would love to sit down for a creative and flirtatious conversation with. To name a few: Cakes Da Killa, Colton Haynes, Dawn Richard, Francois Sagat, Alyssa Edwards, Whoopi Goldberg…
You been a part of many fashion projects. What is your view of fashion? Do you think people still have to follow some rules to be fashionable, or it has been changed?
My view of fashion is pretty one-sided because of my height and build. I look at clothing through very tall eyes. I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with different brands and photographers to create some pretty strong images though.
Still, my blessing is my curse in fashion because a lot of things aren’t really made for my height but honestly, that’s never stopped me from wearing what I think looks great or makes me feel good.
I’m not completely opposed to rules in fashion, especially if there is a theme or a vibe. To me fashion is genderless, which I guess goes against a rule. And as far as sizes go, I think if a piece of clothing looks good on someone then the fit and how you wear it is what matters the most.
Do you have any upcoming big project in 2017?
If your building was on fire, what would you save?
This actually happen to me once! I saved my laptop and my favorite jock strap. Priorities.
