My Lingerie Play

Diana Oh is a brilliant badass super goddess. I am completely honored to be part of My Lingerie Play 2017. My Lingerie Play, created by Diana, is being performed in ten installations, "staged in an effort to provide a saner, safer, more courageous world for women and queer humans to live in." I performed the Pre-Installation with Diana in March, and this week performed Installation 3/10 "EVEN IF YOU FOUND ME LIKE THIS" with an incredible group of humans, led by the incredible Diana.

 

All of these Installations are beautiful, but this one in particular struck a chord for me. It immediately made me think of the white male attending Stanford University who sexually assaulted a drunk/passed out young woman, and was sentenced to a mere six months jail time- of which he only served THREE, having been released early "for good behavior" (I guess he thought real hard about what he'd done and didn't rape anyone else for three months), and of all the young men of color who get caught with pot and serve years. How is this our reality in The United States in 2017?

This conversation MUST continue. I am especially grateful to Diana and all of the amazing performers from this particular installation.
