The real world brooklyn who is dating
As a female, how did you come to identify/choose the name Katelynn? and then spelled it completely and totally fucked up. How did your parents feel about the whole transgender process and assuming pre-op your sexuality? Question: As an activist in the LGBTQ community, how do you feel about trans-discrimination from gay/lesbian people? Reponse: I feel as though there is far too much in-fighting within the QUILTBAG (thank you shobble for giving me a new term!) community and as long as we're too busy fighting over kicking people out of the little boat we're all in, we're gonna miss an opportunity to gain a better standard of living as a whole. I haven't formally trained in any martial art since 2008.
Many months ago, our friend Nate “Igor” Smith photographed the Real World Brooklyn cast. First impression: The go-to BFF/caretaker for everyone in the house.I personally hate reality TV and would never dream of going on to a show like that save for some sneaky, covert, bring-it-down-from-the-inside type job. Response: It wasn't about me or my desires, it was about representing a community that has been heretofore woefully misrepresented if not underrepresented in the media. I'm not suggesting you specifically are doing this but some people do use the birth name as a way of overlaying a gender identity that we don't agree with, almost as if to say, "I know what you really are." As for how I decided upon the name Katelynn, it was rather methodical and geeky, heh. I was born and raised in a traditional Roman Catholic Sicilian household within a Military family. I left home when I was 17 and thankfully over the years have repaired the relationship with my family.I did it to show not all of us look like linebackers in a dress (a la Jerry Springer), and not all of us are completely fucked up and damaged. =) Question: I am always intrigued by trans people and how they invent an identity that corresponds with who they feel they really are. I went through my elementary and middle school yearbooks and a found a name that was somewhat common for my class/birth year... It took them a long time to realize there are worse things in this world their child could be other than transgender...Politics: Doesn’t have a conservative bone in her body. Auditioned: Because she wants to represent the transgendered community.Relationship Status: “Pimpin’ is my thing.”Auditioned: Because she was moving to NYC anyway, to become a hip-hop dancer. Auditioned: Because after serving as an infantryman in Iraq for a year, he’s making up for lost time. Scary awful secret: Plays Dungeons & Dragons, Final Fantasy, and Magic: The Gathering.First impression: His Salem, MA accent makes us queasy with the remembrance of Danny from The Real World: Austin.
The Real World: Brooklyn Reunion premiered on April 1, 2009, following the premiere of the season finale.
We used his candids to make guesses about these fine youth-culture representatives–and as happens with complete speculation, the details were a little off. Kinda over, even before he gets into the house: “I think we’ll stay together. The dude Name: Devyn Age: 20Relationship Status: “It is easier to get into Heaven than into Devyn.” OMG please no. Working for the audience before we even know Name: Katelynn Age: 24Religion: Religious.
So we asked Sharon Steel to watch the first episode last night to set the record straight. Name: Baya Age: 21Religion: Not a Mormon, but grew up surrounded by them. As long as I don’t fuck it up.”First impression: Is about to jam-pack four years of COLLEGE! Auditioned: Because she wants to be there to make fun of people during those moments when they’re going batshit insane with neck veins popping out and peeing on each other and weeping, and we, on the other side of the idiot box, are going “Ho-hum, that is voraciously stupid, why are we watching this? Relationship Status: In a relationship with some dude she thinks she’ll marry.
However, in this day and age you'd be a complete fool not to at least do a cursory Google search of someone you're dating, and thus my dates tend to trudge up very intimate and personal details about me with no context or frame of reference.
It just adds additional degrees of entropy which make an already frustrating and difficult process that much more so. Question: If you were / are not a fan, what was the inspiration to audition for the show? I don't really give away my birth name, not because it's a sensitive issue for me, just that I don't want to set any precedence that it's something trans people are willing to disclose.
