Interview with Zach
Zach began by telling me about how they like to wear their Grandmother's old clothes. We then veered to discussing their current style and the types of accessories or choices that make up a "look". They also brought up the importance of young people expressing their creative self in safe environments. To be frank, not everyone is ready for the visual aesthetics we're ready to serve and that could potentially lead to being harmed. A few of Zach's quotes that I liked the most were:
"It's a performance"
"If they don't like it then they're not my audience. I'm not performing for them"
"it's like we know something they don't. Like we have a secret. And they're not wrong."
"I change my looks based on how I'm feeling that day, sometimes I want to appear more feminine and others I want to be more masculine"
I have about 40 minutes of dialog to sift through in order to refine their quotes.
