Squeamish Kate graduated from Manchester with a Masters in Theatre Studies and a thesis entitled The He-be she-bes that was all about drag kings. Since then she has dabbled in music PR, archiving, reviewing and theatre. Last year she co-founded the feminist news and comment site Squeamish Bikini and the Brighton Feminist Collective. It was quite the year for founding.
What I Do, Fun-wise: Hula-hoop, plot over beers with feminists, wear sequins and force my friends to admit that 'no really, on you they work'.
My Motto: “Revolution, grrrl style now!” My Anti-Motto: “You can't have a pug”
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: I suppose you're going to tell me Panthro doesn't count because Thundercats The Movie was never made.
My “celebs to make out with” list: My plan is, should I ever meet them, is to pretend not to know who they are. That way they will know my love is real. I can't do that if I tell you here.
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: Sleater-Kinney – I wanna be your Joey Ramone
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: I never skim, I either read the whole book or, if I'm not enjoying it, hurl it across the room in disgust, never to be read again. I will always read Jean Rhys and French history books (Nancy Mitford's bio of Madame de Pompadour sparked that odd little hobby).
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Short shorts. I like them.
Beauty Products That I Hoard: ALL THE BEAUTY PRODUCTS, Superdrug 3 for 2 offers are my weakness.
I smell like: Soltan factor 50, Vaseline deodorant and whatever perfume I've decided is totally my signature scent from now on.
