EyeSpy: Sarah

Sarah’s our resident queer about town, going to every drag show, gay night, random queer art show that she can.  Here’s what she sees in a day.
1I got the train from lovely Deptford to London Bridge and then made friends with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel called Brutus on the Northern Line.  His owner was spectacularly attractive, so obviously I didn’t take a photo because I’m socially awkward and still struggle to handle myself around pretty womenz.
 
2My desk ain’t too aesthetically pleasing and my contract is up pretty soon so I figured there’s no point covering my monitor in pictures of kittens and puppies. There’s not a lot that can make it pretty apart from a cameo from my housemate Jo. Usual office staples include tissues (I’m one of those gross hayfeverish girls), Vaseline and coffee.
 
3Before leaving work I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my favourite drag queens had favourited a tweet of mine.  For those of you who keep track of my goings on on Femmenism, you’ll know how much of a big deal this is for me.
 
4Upon returning home from work, I settled down with a Gin in what I like to call my ‘Princess Cup’ and helped my housemates get ready for a ‘Big Time Ballers and Hip Hop Honeys’ party they were heading off to.  Naturally, they were going as Kate and Wills as they return from the hospital with Prince George.
5The resemblance is uncanny.
 
6I headed to meet the girlfriend as we had planned to go to an event called Fanny Pack at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington. You can pretty much guess what this entails. If you’re new on the Queer scene, you should definitely give it a go, it’s incredibly inclusive and overall a really fun time. I channelled some Kathleen Hanna realness and at some point ended up with ‘SLUT’ written on my stomach.
 
7The lovely Annette and Gianna, giving great face and taking music requests – we opted for ‘Supermodel’ by RuPaul, ‘Rebel Girl’ by Bikini Kill and ‘Vogue’ by Madonna. Don’t let me take a trip to Poundland before going out – sequin faces for eeeeeeeveryone. Overall, a standard Friday. Let’s do it all again.
