"I would say my definition of queer means that you get to be unapologetically yourself. That you don't have to worry about fitting in with being gay or straight or bisexual or anything in between all that. You can just
fit in to this LGBT realm however you want."
"Oh Absolutely, I grew up in the county outside of Baltimore City and always had a really hard time trying to figure out what aspect of the LGBT I was. Then I moved to the city and started working at a cafe down here, and doing more theatre down here, and getting to know people who really didn't care one way or the other how you fit into all of this. It made me really understand that we live in a city where people want that to succeed, that ideas of self identification
to be a broader and more all encompassing thing."
"The thing that I like so much about Baltimore theatre is I've never really gone to an audition, or been in a show, where anyone has said anything to me along the lines of, 'you aren't exactly what we're looking for.' A lot of Baltimore theatre is very good at opening their eyes and horizons to see different types of people playing different parts.
I think that has a lot to do with what it means to be queer."
