No, I didn’t drop my smile

Turning the tables on the catcallers

By Alex Zaragoza
Dear catcallers of the world! No, I didn't drop my smile. No, I won't show you my tits. And while, yes, I may look fine as hell in my dress, I don't need you to tell me from your moving vehicle.

Drag shows with Mama

Partying with Amelia and a gay witch doctor

By Alex Zaragoza
So, my mom met a guy. It's been almost five years since my dad, her husband of 39 years, died of cancer. He was the only man she'd ever been with, having married him when she was just 19 years old.

I broke up like this

Ending a marriage and seeking realness the non-Beyoncé and Jay Z way

By Alex Zaragoza
The tip of my pen fell upon the paper and I paused. Not because I wasn't ready to sign the name I've hated writing or admitting is legally mine for the last six years, but because it reminded me of another moment.

Thirty, dirty and striving

Revisiting my teenage dreams upon hitting three decades

By Alex Zaragoza
I'm 30 years old. It's official. That milestone birthday's been lurking, and when it finally arrived I welcomed it as I'd welcome a never-ending nacho platter—drunkenly and without fear.

Surviving womanhood

How Krav Maga empowered me to fight violence and misogyny

By Alex Zaragoza
I often find myself in situations where I don't feel safe, not because I have a penchant for hanging out in sketchy neighborhoods, but because that's the world women live in. That's not paranoia.

How Gozie got her groove back

Catching the clap at a dance contest was the best thing ever

By Alex Zaragoza
The thing about most slumps is that they can be conquered, and the moment mine ended came in true Gozer fashion —shaking dat ass hard on a dance floor.

Floating in heartbreak

Looking for answers in a sensory-deprivation tank

By Alex Zaragoza
Fans of floatation therapy do it for a number of reasons. Some go for stress relief and to achieve total relaxation, others do it to help with pain. I was there for the third reason floatation therapy has become popular: to allow your brain to be completely clear and focus on something with zero distractions.
