Ep #12: Online Bullying, Performance Anxiety, & Self-Care in Drag with Lillith Grey Part II
This is Part II of the amazing conversation with Lillith Grey. If you haven’t listened to the first part of this podcast from last week, we highly recommend that you do! We had an amazing chat about mental health, trauma, and how we as performers work through our trauma on stage — whether we know it or not. In this week’s episode, we discuss bullying and how we can implement self-care and mental health practices into our daily routine! “It’s important for us to not only focus just on the people who experience bullying, but also the people who do it.” “Your first five performances, generally you don’t even remember… but after that, it’s time to start really looking at what you are doing, and watching your videos critically and a lot of times that’s an anxiety-provoking thing because you have to be willing to grow…” “If we just took the time to learn about ourselves before going out into the world, then it would it would change everything… “ – Brandi Amara Skyy “There’s no absolute in life, but you can’t have either or. It’s all about both/ands. You need the person who is going to be the militant and burn the motherfucker down. But then you also need the person that is going to come in and be like how can I bridge these two together. “ – Brandi Amara Skyy LISTEN TO THE SHOW Subscribe: iTunes Listen: Stitcher TOPICS DISCUSSED (with all new timestamps!)
