1. Who are you most looking forward to seeing at this year’s Latitude festival across the Arenas (Obelisk, Uncut, Comedy, Theatre, Literary and Poetry, Film & Music) and why?
It's going to be something of a family reunion for me at Latitude this year. Little Boots is a friend of my sister's from school, and some of my very favourite people in the world are in The Irrepressibles, so more than anything I'm looking forward to seeing them. Of course, I wouldn't mind making new friends, should anyone (i.e. Grace Jones) care to.
2. What aspect of Latitude Festival interests you the most and why?
I think it's pretty groovy that the festival has so many writers and poets in amongst the music and comedy acts. People my age seem to have stopped reading, literatures so underrated in the golden age of Youtube. Three cheers for Latitude and her books!
3. What can people expect you to bring to the festival and do you have anything special planned?
People can expect whatever their filthy little hearts desire, but what they'll get is a transdrogynous entertainment spectacle, a riotous set of songs and stories inspired by my life in New York. Oh, and an amazing dress made out of paper aeroplanes, by Faye-Michelle Turner.
4. If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?
Rolling around in a gutter somewhere with the rag tag bunch of trannies and punks I call my friends. Or reading "Winnie the Pooh"with my niece, depending on the weather.
5. What do you always bring to a festival?
Condoms and lavender facial mist.
6. Have you been to Latitude before, and if so, what has your favourite performance been?
This is my first trip, in fact it's my first Summer in the UK for five years, so I'm very excited. From what I remember people in the UK go delirious and strip off as soon as the first ray of sun is seen, I like that spirit of adventure and hope to encourage it.
7. Do you have any festival tips for those in attendance at Latitude?
I am absolutely the last person you should ask practical advice of. I just get shoved in a car, pushed onstage and then put back into storage. I have literally no idea how to put up a tent or get the grass stains out of your pants. In fact, I encourage you to sleep on the ground and enjoy your soiled clothing. Prepare for those ever closer post-apocalyptic days I say.
8. What is your favourite colour Sheep?
I love the whole rainbow of sheep, and seeing them all strolling about like a fleet of macaroons on legs is something I am looking forward to immensely.
