Introduction I guess. I'm Julia! I'm a sophomore theatre major / holocaust studies minor in the northeastern US.

I love fairytales, history (European / 17th-20th century most), musical theatre, dramaturgy, and classic literature.

I'm a bit of a nerd & excited to interact with everyone!

Instead of a long post about the Salvation Army, I'll just say this:

If you didn't know, they're an ultraconservative right-wing church. They are very homophobic, as ultraconservative right-wing churches tend to be. They threaten to pull out of anywhere that tries to protect LGBT+ people, as ultraconservative churches tend to do.

Really, does anything else have to be said?

okay can I just say I genuinely do love shakespeare studies (I mean, obvi, I'm a theatre student) but if I have to see the word "homosociality" one more time I might just lost my mind. Just admit people were gay oh my god.
