What do you love about the New Mexico LGBTQ community?
The strength of our community is amazing and unbroken. When attacked, we all rise to support and defend.
What do you feel still needs to be improved?
We need to focus on building bridges with communities outside of our GLBTQ community. I believe the United Court of The Sandia's has done a great job of building bridges, but we need to see more from other organizations.
What do our youth need to know?
Our youth need to know their voices are important and valid in our community. They need to know they are important as individuals, but in numbers they are more powerful. Fame is great, but it is not the most important thing in the world….Instead of being a fad that fades away, be timeless, and always be in style.
What do you love about drag?
Drag is an amazing art form that allows us to be the Queens of our own universes. Makeup, hair, jewels are so much fun, but drag is much more than having expensive jewels, big hair, an amazing gown, or phenomenal dance moves. It's about community, it's about helping each other, it's about expression, story telling, and having fun.
Will we be seeing more of Stacia in the future?
Possibly. I don't know what tomorrow brings. I am only living for today.
