August 30, 2023

What city do you live in?
I currently live in S Mpls although I also still have roots in Columbia Heights. I split my time between the two cities.

Fave bar:
Right now, I'm actually loving the atmosphere at BUCH Fermentary & Taproom because the hard kombucha there is bomb! I also am very fond of 56 Brewing because they have a great selection of non-alcoholic beverages and they are so very cool. Plus, their bathrooms are all gender neutral!

Fave drag performer:
See, this is going to start a war. I can't choose a fave because everyone in my troupe, Transcendence Cabaret, is my fave. I also adore Julia Starr (who doesn't???) so much. I think we're just gonna leave it at that.

Go to bartender:
Leon at BUCH is amazing. Also, when I go to Mr Mom's Midwest Bingo & Meat Raffle on the first and third Monday of the month, the people at 56 Brewing are amazing as well.

Where do I like to eat:
I have my favourite places. Dong Yang has a little Korean restaurant in its Korean grocery store. Soberfish is wonderful. I love New Fresh Wok for its sushi lunch special. Rebecca's Bakery has the best baked goods, period. And for 24 hour goodness? Mickey's Diner by Willy is amazing. You can also find me eating at Flameburger because I am a sucker for greasy spoons. Ditto for Ideal Diner. Hullo, homemade hash browns!

DJ that makes me dance:
So I don't go out dancing now because Covid is still a thing and I won't go to any crowded venue where masking isn't mandatory. But I have some fave DJs though. Mickey Breeze. Miles Taylor. Drew Untethered.

Single? Ready to mingle?
Well, that depends. I'm not single. I'm very happily partnered and it's an open relationship so maybe? Although this demisexual/demiromantic wants to get to know you first; sex and romance isn't the first, second, or third thing on my mind. If you're a big geek, love to read, and do some big heavy work around decolonization and racism, we might need to talk!

Any special involvement in the Queer community?
You tell me. Hah! Yeah, people know who I am (to take a page from Tony Stark). You might know me as Eun Bee Yes. You might know me as Saint Walk of No Shame. And you know me as Jeong Eun Park. I'm fortunate to be involved in a few communities. I learn so much from those around me. I've been involved since 1991 and I guess it's just gone on from there. A big thank you to everyone who has welcomed me to their communities, whether it's drag, burlesque, the Imperial Court of Minnesota (ICOM), the Ladies of the Lakes (LOL), leather and kink, North Star Gay Rodeo (NSGRA)... y'all have been so good to your fave smol Porg!

Any special involvement in the Queer community? 
I've done some photography work for organizations like the Aliveness Project. My current explorations just involve learning how to dance, mastering my yoga skills, and having coffee while chitchatting with the folks over at the YMCA. I would love to eventually do donation based Reiki/Yoga classes and/or meditation/breathing lessons. As of right now though, my favorite thing to do is Friday Night Faggotry, where me and some fellow queers get together and drink, gossip, etc. :)
