In May, I spent the afternoon with @clairo. We spoke about everything from middle school bullies to music & falling in love. Today, IMMUNITY finally comes out and I couldn’t be more impressed with the way she continues to use her platform to make the internet a kinder place. Happy release day, @clairo πŸ’–

I still get #NationalDanceDay notifications on my phone even though I haven’t performed in over a year. I still think about dance a lot. I think about my sore limbs, flexible lower back, and pink silk pointe shoes. I remember the exhaustion. I remember the pretty tutus. I remember twisting my left ankle five minutes before my senior dance recital. I remember giving up most Saturdays or Sundays in college without second thought. I remember what it felt like to present choreography to @johnjasperse and the specific look he gave when he knew someone was full of shit. Dance is an intense art form. It’s very fucking personal. It requires you to throw so much of yourself onto a stage and then just walk away. It’s beautiful, captivating, and healing. I think that’s why I still love writing about dance so much. There is a lot about the dance community that no one talks about: the epsom salt, perfectionism, sexism, and lack of productive conversations around mental health. In most settings, it can be incredibly toxic. And, that’s exactly why I know I need to write about dance more ❀️ And if you’re celebrating #NationalDanceDay this weekend... I hope you’re celebrating yourself too.

When I ran into Mikaela in Silverlake two weeks ago, we joked that it was a Very Gay Miracle that brought us together. Today, our conversation goes live on @them, a brand that has meant so much to me since its inception. Thank you to @whembleysewell, @keaton.kilde.bell, @aaminasdfghjkl, and Tyler for giving this conversation a home, to the talented artists behind these covers, and to Mikaela for taking a break from producing her new record to talk to me about art, sex, and queerness. ❀️ I can’t wait for your forthcoming album. I’ll probably fucking cry, too.

Last month, I flew to Los Angeles for 48 hours and ate Sweetgreen with @Madelame for Elite Daily’s May cover. Overlooking Topanga Canyon, we spoke about everything from representation and #Choni to ambition and YouTube. We also both happened to be wearing matching power suits. Thank you to the @elitedaily team: @grpzertuche, @beckyabrown, @kyliemcconv, @clarethig, @mwjohnso, @torknoerzer, @theresamassony, @hsaltz, @kcawlz, @christinadambro, @xcalabre, @sironson, and so many more editors and friends... and of course to @wesleybonner for everything. Also, very special shoutout to @whembleysewell who very happily re-watched all of riverdale with me. Link in bio πŸ’›πŸ’™
