Q1. Why are you in Belltown?

A.  I've lived and worked here and this place is my home. There are nodes in Seattle that still feel like Seattle. They're funky. They're weird. They're interesting and working class. I come back because Belltown is one of those rare oases in the city. I'm working class, but I always feel welcome here.

Q2. What's your favorite thing about #Belltown?

A.  If there is such a thing as dystopia -- which I think we can agree that there is -- that dystopia comes from a lack of diversity. Here that diversity still exists, and we keep it at bay by actively crossing boundaries of race, class, and gender. This place has a genuine street life that we see less and less of in Seattle.

Q3. What's your message for the Mayor and Council about Belltown?

A.  You are openly a part of the LGBTQ community, which was founded on a belief in fighting for people who are marginalized by the mainstream. Don't be so corporatist - corporations aren't people. Join us as a citizen. Being a public servant means advocating for ALL of your constituents. Money shouldn't buy power.
