VGL 5'4" Top is 0 Feet Away from You

When I performed in the San Francisco Fringe last year, I knew about five people in the city, so I had to get creative and aggressive with my advertising technique. So you know what I did? This.


For the ladies and straight boys who are not familiar, that is my Grindr profile. I transformed it into a travelling flier of sorts, popping up on the iPhone screens of all of the boys within a mile or two of wherever I went. I don't know if it got people to come to the show, but it definitely got some attention!

At the time, I assumed this was mostly because I was fresh meat. But as you can see above, I have put this advertising method back into play, and I seem to getting a surprising amount of attention here in New York as well. I don't know if it's because of the photo, or because of the headline. Either way, I'm not so sure how I feel about it. I mean, do I really want to hook up with a guy who's turned on by my awkward face? 

On my Scruff profile, it makes a little more sense. Smart and kind people they are, I actually get to use my whole photo, because they admit that they are totally facilitating casual sex, and I also have room to say something about what's going on. This allows a lot more people to get it.



I just thought that was a fun story to share. 

Anyway, I am opening THIS FRIDAY! If you haven't bought your tickets yet, I recommend that you do so. It looks like a lot of folks are showing up at the door just before the show. You don't want to have to fight them off, do you? Of course you don't!
