I am performing at the white house for her goddess, Michelle Obama and his infinite coolness, Barack, this week for a private ceremony for the Harvey Milk stamp issuance. Good news, I already know what dress I’m wearing. It’s hella patriotic. Could you imagine turning up to the most beautiful place that is the White House without wearing something that is patriotic? I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Now, when I say patriotic, I don’t mean wearing anything that looks remotely similar to the American flag. All I mean is that you should try and represent the red, white, and blue colours of the country that we all love so much.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to visit the White House. I don’t mean in a presidential capacity, but to just have the opportunity to visit the grounds and maybe take a glimpse inside. I’ve always been fascinated with the flags that you always see flying over the building and on the land. I bet they had to look for the most effective flagpole hardware kit that they could get their hands on so they could make sure that they can fly the American flag, as well as subsequent flags, loud and proud for all to see. Even just the thought of this is making me get all excited. I am about to achieve a childhood dream after all, and in front of two people who some would say have made the country a better place to be.
I just can’t wait for the day of my performance to come.
Most people are unfortunately unable to be at that performance (unless you have a zillion dollars or are in the FBI or are Harry Styles or are an Animorph or something), BUT if you are in the D.C. area, I am performing a few songs for the Harvey Milk Foundation fundraiser event the night before.
THIS Wednesday, May 21st at Cobalt.
For those of you who don’t know, Harvey Milk was an inspiring leader for LGBT rights. He was one of the world’s first openly gay elected officials and was subsequently assassinated because of his sexual orientation. His story is beyond moving.
