I am determined for this to be updated daily.
Every day I'm going to post about something or something personally inspiring to me. You may be able to relate or you may not. Today's guest is Dave End! I met Dave at the Youth Activism Gathering in Turner, Maine last Spring. Fierce, bubbly, witty and covered in glitter, he sang to us about being a chubby queer teenager. Lonely but employing enthusiastic survival to get through it. We exchanged messages after he played and he told me "we're all fine." It was comforting. I'm a young chubby queer also from Maine. Also kind of lonely. I instantly gratified to his music and his emanating warmth of character.
From one of my favorite songs and one you can hear on his MySpace, Phat Camp:
"And if dieting were natural it wouldn't need an industry and if you wanna hook us up then give us cheap nutritious eats not masochistic Ph. Ds. And they make it seem easier to get liposuction than to buy a new a pair of pants and I can't help but wonder if we'd be happier if we could learn how to hold our own hands."
I have been striving to hold my own hand ever since.
