Daniela sea dating black men dating an indian women
Her stepfather taught her to surf and moved the family to Hawaii so they could enjoy better surfing. and moved to the Bay Area, "like a good gay kid would." While there in Berkeley, she joined the DIY/punk/feminist/artist space Gilman Street Project, studied improv acting in Laney College, and played in several punk rock bands, including The Gr'ups and Cypher in the Snow. She hitchhiked through Turkey, did some street theatre, and performed as a fire juggler with a traveling circus in Poland. At one point in her world travels, she lived in India for eight months as a man.
Her earliest memories are of the ocean, later inspiring her pseudonym. She said about her sexuality: But I…don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended.
Actually a lot of the script was based on improvisation, and…it was really exciting. And my friends were so great; they took all my shifts for me, and I just flew out there, spent my last money on tickets, and I did the audition. for the audition, did you meet any of the cast at that point? [She’s] this Midwestern butch; she’s a computer technician; really gentlemanly.
We workshopped that for a while, and he came up with a script, and then we started shooting it the following year, which would be last spring. At the same time I was working at my restaurant job in the West Village, and I was making myself a reel. It was all really DIY and it was all really last-minute, like “Can you have this thing to us in three days? By the following Tuesday—so that was a Friday audition—by next Tuesday I got the call that I got the job. DS: Mia auditioned with me because my role is as her new romance. AE: So tell me about the character that you’re playing. Actually she has a really sweet side also, as a lot of butches that we know do. I feel like she’s the type who’ll open doors for the femmes, or carry heavy stuff, but also I feel like [she] has a real respect for people on the more feminine side of the spectrum as intellectuals.
 "I definitely have only had significant relationships since I was 19 with women.
And politically I'm definitely a lesbian, or a dyke, or on the queer spectrum. don't believe that gender is just binary, and I never have, so that's what pulls me to sometimes politically identify as a lesbian, because I'm a feminist, and I feel like women are still so suppressed. But I also feel like there are people all along the spectrum, so in that sense, I feel like I would be more bisexual or just, you know, open-ended." (interview, After Ellen, 3 January 2006).
We talked to her the day after she returned to the New York apartment she shares with Bitch, following a whirlwind six months on the set of Daniela Sea : For a lot of years I’ve just been concentrating on traveling and writing and music…and about a year and a half ago I started taking my acting seriously. and I moved to the Bay area, like a good gay kid would.And that’s what I’d always dreamed of, so that was great for a lot of years.Then I ended up back in New York [due to] a lot of different circumstances, and while I was here I just realized that I’d been missing this thing [acting] that I loved so much.…She was also brought up with Catholic things, unlike me—my parents were total hippie artists. I could really sympathize with Moira, and of course I see myself in her in some ways.favorite, but at this moment when I think about it, I think it was really great to just be able to do the work, to delve into being an actor—and on such a scale like that and for so many months.
As the new recurring character, Moira, who falls in love with Jenny Schechter (Mia Kirshner), Sea promises to bring a butch sensibility to the show that has been criticized for playing it too safe on the genderqueer spectrum.
