I first met Ania during college. She was studying feminism and had already been dancing for 15 years. One morning our final semester we continued an on-going conversation about gender equality in the US. We were upset over the fact that even today in 2013 the most well-known dance choreographers and film directors were still male. We often times found ourselves greatly disturbed by both our industries in the way mainstream/commercial dance and film continues to exploit the female body and feminine mind without proper representation. When these daily reminders didn’t sink us through the ground, Ania and I created art to survive.
dearSAPPHO is a personal video about love, women, art, and survival. Instead of giving up, let us join together to create… even if out of tragic beginnings.
this piece was inspired by two friends who happened to be artists. I love you ania, always and forever. this is my love letter to you
My name is Alexa (right) and the beautiful girl on the left is my girlfriend Steph. We have been dating for a little over a year and she is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me!
Anyways, we want to open up our circles and find more lesbian/ lesbian couple friends that we can do things with! I am 24, working full-time living in Philly. Steph is 20 (almost 21) working at a hospital and attending nursing school, living in South Jersey.
If you are from around our area and wanna be friends please feel free to message/ follow either one of us or both!
