We had the good fortune of connecting with Stephanie Galindo and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Stephanie, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
QUOTE: “You have to do it alone, but you don’t have to be alone”.- Dutchess Craftastic. This quote is from a friend from olympia washington. They gifted me one of their art posters when I met them and their quote has stuck with me since 2018. I say it a lot and it means that I am not alone in this world ever.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I like to become another human that is a storyteller with their movement. Acting/Drag performance is great to express my emotions I sometimes hide in public. What I am most proud is how I can show storytelling with my movements, my face and emotions. All my training and continuing to train has aided me to be where I am professionally today. Its always a constant struggle sometimes but i chose to call my challenges fun. One of the greatest lessons I have learned is to not be afraid to let your freak flag fly. More people so know that I am who I am and no one can change that but me. My story is growing and I am excited to put more of my creativity out in the world , to also collaborate with similar artist.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
BRUUUUUUH, check out all the nature spots in The Los Angeles Area such as Ernest debs park, ascot hills. Go get some boba in Alhambra near South Pasadena. Hang out at Hollywood blvd and see the real dirty sidewalk. The most fun place to attend for me is Six Flags. Walk a lot, get on rides that make you feel similar to superman and feel the soreness of the next day at night when you fall asleep. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents, my brother, cake. My close inner circle of friends. My mentors and professors of institutions of academia I have attended including ELAC, Second City. My Drag groups I have been a part of. Charlie Chaplin. My mind and body.
