I personally have really enjoyed the queer crowd that comes out to this event. For me, it's almost selfish because there are so many hot butches that come! Every single happy hour is like I'm in a candy store.
Some of my favorite memories are the first happy hour, where we played an icebreaker game of what three things you would take with you to be stranded on a deserted island. I started making a mental list of who I would want to bring instead of what! If we teamed up, we could make our own little survival queer village. This being stranded on a deserted island thing is starting to look nice.
Then last month, in June, we had our bootblack, Skittles. It was such fun watching her work. I love leather and seeing that connection between bootblack and the person they are caring for makes me happy in more ways than one.
I'm looking forward to many more Queer Sphere Happy Hours and I'm grateful to be a Queer Sphere producer. It's such a wonderful program and I feel so supported by the entire team!
