Name/Alias: Frankie H. Ten guesses what the H stands for…
Education: Masters student in Sociology at UCT. Doing my thesis on male homosexuality (Lesotho). And, yes, finding research subjects is just as difficult as you’d imagine. Of course, it’d probably help if I actually went to Lesotho.
Work: Varsity tutor. I make kids smarter… I think.
Relationship Status: Single. (Hellooooo ladies…)
Books that get me off: The Beach by Alex Garland. Works of various theorists, like Plato, Foucault, Butler, and Bourdieu. And anything by Jodi Picoult. (Ja ja ja… you can stop laughing now.)
Music that makes me hard: Radiohead. Dubstep. And weird acoustic Indie music that you’ve probably never heard of.
Fave food: Pizza. And chocolate. But not together, ‘cos that’d be kind of gross.
Fave drink: Anything with alcohol or caffeine in it. Or both.
Hobbies: Art, astrophysics, and sex.
Languages: English, Spanish, and the language of Love.
Deepest secret: None of your f*cking business. But if you booze me up and feed me chocolate and pizza (but not together), I might just tell you.
3 Interesting facts: (1) I’m a certified massage therapist, (Hellooooo, ladies!); (2) I’ve backpacked 28 countries over the past 5 years; (3) I’ve watched the full Queer as Folk series something like 13 times. (Hmm… maybe I should have put that in the ‘Embarrassing facts’ section.)
Weirdest fantasy: To get married in Antarctica. Or on the moon.
Strangest experience: I got locked in the mortuary of an old concentration camp whilst in Sachenhausen, Germany. I was walking around till too late and the guard didn’t realize I was still there (I was in the basement), so he shut the lights and locked the doors. It was terrifying, but I finally found an emergency exit after about an hour of feeling my way around in pure panic.
Fave city: New Orleans. Always has been and always will be. Of course, I grew up there, so I’m biased. But nothing compares and I will never be convinced otherwise. So there.
