Every time I put on my tutu and step out to dance in public, I am met with an amazing range of reactions. People smile, laugh, give me high fives, capture footage on their phones, and some even share a little dance with me. Others pretend to ignore me, cross the road to avoid me or just look on quizzically. 99% let me go on my merry prancing way in peace. For all of them, I hope I manage to bring something to brighten their day while also using my prancing freedom to dance to highlight the serious evil of the millions around the world denied their freedoms through slavery and servitude. Every positive reaction drives my dancing mission onwards.
But not everyone loves me doing it. I have been verbally abused countless times, had things thrown at me by passing cars, received huge amounts of homophobic abuse (I'm guessing it's the tutu?), and of course been run over by a drunk driver in a hit and run.
So if you've had the opposite reaction to my dancing - been left smiling by one of my videos or a little bit inspired by what I'm up to, please consider donating to help me keep going. Your support means I can dance further, cover more miles, share my story with more people and ultimately make more of a difference for the charities I support. All funds you donate here go towards my on-the-road dancing expenses, helping keep my prancing adventures proudly people powered.
Thank you for your support.
