Our motto is “Let Us Dare.” What was the last thing you dared to do?

Drag “Her”story: a course in the history of drag culture and its impact on society.

My Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets poster from the Barnes & Noble Yule Ball event.

What’s your favorite store to shop in?

I love going into Barnes & Noble and just taking in all of the books around me.
