Interview with Foolish Mortal

Lissa (she/her) is a queer asexual artist. I asked him about himself and his content, as well as content he’s been enjoying recently. You can check out Will at the links at the end of the interview.

  1. What queer terminology do you use for yourself publicly, offline and / or online? Do not feel pressured to come out as anything in your answer. Please only disclose whatever you’re comfortable with.
    • Asexual or Queer – is the identity I tend to use. The specifics are more complex but it gets to be a mouthful to say “bi romantic – grey-sexual”.
  2. What non-queer demographic terminology do you use for yourself? (nationality, wealth, ethnicity, race, disability / ability, neurotype, age, education, occupation, for example). Again, please only disclose whatever you’re comfortable with.
    • I’m a college educated American middle class woman. Pretty non exciting or interesting as far as demographics go. Most exciting thing about me is I have red hair and a cocktail of anxiety and depression.
  3. What content do you produce?
    • I’m an artist. My art is inspired by history and vintage art techniques. I lean a bit on the morbid humor and nerd references.
  4. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not creating content?
    • I play video games and read when I’m sick of those.
  5. What does the queer community needs to do better about understanding, accepting, and supporting?
    • The community need to stop fussing over labels and gate keeping. Simple as that. The more divisions we create in the LGBT community the easier it is to tear down.
  6. What are you excited about going forward? Can be anything from creative projects, personal or professional milestones, etc.
    • After a rough year or so – I’m working on getting new merchandise set up and working online events this fall.
    • I’m also organizing an online winter market.
    • I’m enjoying seeing how the artist community as a whole is adapting for the pandemic.
  7. Are there any pets or plants in your life?
    • I have a black cat named Mina I rescued last spring. She’s been a highlight of lockdown.
    • I also have started a small herb garden – but we’ll see if they last.
  8. What content creators have you been enjoying recently?
    • I recently got into Overly Sarcastic Productions which is a delight.
  9. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
    • My sense of humor. It’s probably not for everyone – but it’s kept me going through some bad patches. My jokes may be bad but its better than misery.

Lissa can be found on twitter and facebook.
