I tend to post about #art events in #Dallas, how to be a #queer #volunteer, #voting in local #elections, contemporary #Latino #food and culture, plus the odd #photo of whatever interesting shape catches my eye.
Prepare for very long sentences, Oxford commas, and #AllTheHashTags.
Happy photo (with strong eye contact)
Happy International Clown Week!
