I was actually born in Chicago, and then when I was a toddler, my parents moved to Philadelphia.
Then I read Little Women, and of course, like a lot of really young girls, I was very taken with Jo - Jo being the writer and the misfit.
I'm a worker. I do the work to communicate, and I want people to embrace it, and when they do I'm happy.
I was so unhealthy as a child, and at least three or four times my parents were told to get ready, that I would not make it.
I always enjoyed doing transgender songs.
I liked being on stage; I just didn't like the theatrical aspect of being in front of people.
