I went to a promo appearance on Tuesday here in London, at the venue where I am going to be performing Phone Whore next Tuesday. It was an open mic night at a well-known queer bar. I got there early for the sign-up, hardly anyone was there, but I was still nervous walking in. Every time I do a promo appearance like this, I worry about the same thing: Do people feel attracted to me?
I dress normal for me: blue floral babygirl dress with a plunging neckline, ruffle-butt panties, garter belt holding up my thermal cut-off leggings, cowboy boots of course. This is comfortable attire for me, but I know for a fact that in most communities it is considered serious slutwear for a fattie to show so much tits and leg and garter-belt straps. That’s fine. I am always looking for attention. I just want to feel comfortable doing it.
I get that a lot, people saying OMG I am totally coming to your show, I’m going to tweet this and bring friends to it and OMG this is amazing. I smile and offer them extra cards if they want them, but I learned long ago not to take seriously anything that anyone says with a pint of booze in their hand.
