Name: Katie Sly 

Age: 27

Sign: Aquarius

“The process of writing a play is the loneliest descent into madness I’ve ever known,” says bisexual playwright and performer Katie Sly. “I write from my experience, my bowels, my cunt, and it costs something huge. It’s worth it — it’s more than worth it — to have the privilege to share my soul, but it demands a willingness to go temporarily insane.” Sly has a passion for mid-century-modern furniture, her favourite clothes are corsets made out of red hemp, and when asked how she likes to get fucked says, “Past the point of civility.” 

Sly hosts Too Queer: A Bi Visibility Cabaret, Fri, June 6 at Videofag, 187 Augusta Ave.
