Describe your ringside style: T shirts of bands, wrestlers or other pop culture thing, skinny pants, jean jacket with Cesaro or X Files patch on the back, and flats.

How did you become a wrestling fan?

After living in Alabama during the Attitude Era, I had a lot of negative associations with wrestling, mostly based on the fans I knew and how they treated teen-female-bodied-punk-rock me. Even after meeting a collection of male feminists who like wrestling, including my current partner, I still had a mental block against it. Fast forward to 28, through a period where I studied ballet and restoration comedies: partner and I are sitting around unemployed after moving, and he binge watches CM Punk matches. I start to recognize how wrestling functions and see that it’s not all offensive, just mostly. What really sold me was going to a Chikara show in AL, and meeting people partner had stayed with touring with his band, and re-meeting people I knew from punk shows in Montgomery. I then realized there was a space in wrestling for me and my friends. I settled into that space and then branched out from there.
