Daniela: (About her sexuality) But I…don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. I don't feel like we've come that far. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended.
Daniela: It evolved quickly when I realized what freedom I'd have. As a man, I could ask questions and walk around at night. I felt it would give me better access to the culture. I don't feel anyone suspected anything. I never felt threatened, like I do here. If I want to, people think I'm a boy. I'm a tomboy. I always wear boys' clothes. I don't have to try very hard one way or the other.
Daniela: I had no money for years... It made me have more faith in people and feel like I belonged in the world, actually, and made me feel proud to be part of the world instead of like when I was younger [and was] this rebellious punk rocker who never felt like I belonged anywhere.
Daniela: I mean, I definitely have only had significant relationships since I was 19 with women. And politically I'm definitely a lesbian, or a dyke, or on the queer spectrum...But I don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. I don't feel like we've come that far. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended.
Daniela attended the GLBTQQ film festivals with Itty Bitty.
Daniela: I played in some different punk bands. I played in a San Francisco band, The Cipher in the Snow, it was an all-women band. And I played in a band called the Gr'ups-we're actually doing a reunion in the spring, which is really cool. That was a punk band out of Gilman, and we toured in Europe and the U.S., and I ended up staying over in Europe. I did some street theater stuff, and I traveled with a Polish circus, and I just really lived a pretty different life than what I grew up seeing around me. And that's what I'd always dreamed of, so that was great for a lot of years.
Daniela: For a lot of years I've just been concentrating on traveling and writing and music… and about a year and a half ago I started taking my acting seriously. I had studied it when I was younger, at Laney College in Oakland. I'd run away from home when I was 16 and moved out there.
Daniela: For me, the sexiest kind of woman is a really outspoken, liberated, feminist woman.
Daniela: I feel like all the art I've ever made has been about making the world a more inclusive and tolerant place. I'm not going to be involved with something that I don't believe in.
Daniela: If I want to, people think I'm a boy. I'm a tomboy. I always wear boys' clothes. I don't have to try very hard one way or the other.
Daniela: I've done a lot of crazy things in my life.
