My dad recently died and this was the last thing he ever said to me. I found a card that had his handwriting and decided that this was something I wanted to look at for the rest of my life. Oh and for the record, I love you too Daddy.

I ran across Radclyffe Hall’s portrait today and could not handle all the history crush feels I was having. What a defiant, fabulous badass.
Radclyffe Hall (born Marguerite Radclyffe-Hall on 12 August 1880 – 7 October 1943) was an English poet and author, best known for the lesbian classic The Well of Loneliness.

My mother raised me on Bette Davis films from a very young age. Classic films have always had a special place in my heart. But when my mother introduced me to Bette for the very first time, I fell in love. In many ways, I related her to my mother. Bette was strong, ballsy, passionate and driven. She didn’t allow anyone to take advantage of her. My mother has been my rock for many years and Bette has always been our greatest mutual link. I hope to one day be comprised of their qualities.
Bette is my daily reminder to be smart and selfish but also to be compassionate and determined.
My passions were all gathered like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.
