How did you become popular on Instagram?
I used to dabble in music, and so my initial following came from that. Then I used my Instagram as a diary. I guess people kinda got connected to my journey, and wanted to see what happened next.
How does your typical day look like?
It varies. I do so many different things, and for so long I’ve not let anything define me. Some days I’m running a casting. Some days I’m in the casting. Some days I’m writing, drawing or photographing. In the evenings I go to acting school. The rest is just selfies.
How many times did you hear “Oh, I saw you on Instagram”?
A few times. Mainly in the gay areas of London, New York, LA & San Francisco. I’ve been recognised at least once in all of those places. I’m very shy in reality, so these kind of encounters are a bit nerve wracking for me, but it is nice to connect with the people who I share so much with.
What does it mean to you to be popular on Instagram?
It means I have a place to share my story. Whether it’s the good or bad stuff, I know someone will be listening, and that’s a comforting feeling.
When you were a little boy, what did you dream about?
That I’d be different from everyone else.
