About Me:
Dolly Rose (aka Victoria) is an unapologetically-Black, fiercely-opinionated, tomboy-dyke, Bootblack, & Dolly who loves femme-drag & brown leather.

As an adult, she has lived in New York City, Sonoma County, CA, San Francisco, CA, and now Indianapolis, IN. She worked in film & television production in NYC for 11 years before shifting her focus to writing. A proud angry Black woman & casual misandrist, this prurient Black Barbie has spent a lifetime telling stories, either as a performer, as part of a film crew, or with her words.

Though she no longer holds a Leather title or has a Leather bar to call her home-bar, she’s still committed to working with her partner & Mommy, Marta to create meaningful Leather spaces in Indy that she can feel proud to be a part of. She is also delighted to be a founding member of the Midwest chapter of the UnRuly Social Club, a new Leather club for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People/Persons of Color) Women (ALL Women) & Non-Binary people.

Dolly is passionate about amplifying underrepresented factions of Leather/BDSM subculture through writing, teaching, and shouting into the void of social media much to the irritation of “old guard” traditionalists. Favorite pastimes include challenging conventions and rooting for everybody Black.

About My Patreon:
The hustle is a 24/7 pursuit but, I can't can't work all the time.

My specific hustles include: writing, teaching, performing, party-hosting, community organizing... and that's just within the sex-positive/kink/Leather community! In order to do these things as well as I know I can do them (which is pretty fucking well), and in a way that highlights and honors the least-visible members of these communities, I need the freedom of time. Time where I'm not working supplemental gigs in order to cover my expenses.

That's where you come in! Every dollar that is pledged to me here on Patreon is a quantifiable unit of time that I don't have to devote to less worthy pursuits. Less time copyediting other people's words, less time cooking food for rich people, less time doing bridal makeup for straight people, less time making industrial tech videos... you get the idea.

The best part is, by supporting me here on Patreon, you get a double-benefit: the content available only to subscribers here, AND the greater volume of content I'll be free to produce for the world at large! (yes I know I sound like a megalomaniac, just go with it, it's part of my charm) 

What you are not likely to find here: content that amplifies the voices or centers the experiences of cis-men or white folks.

What you *are* likely to find here: content in the form of essays & opinions pieces, short stories, poetry, photos, videos, & the undefinable. All speaking to how I, as a Black, fat, queer, American, Leather, woman redefine my relationship to sex & sexuality, pleasure, and love in a world that tries to deny my right to all these things. 

Hopefully, through observing my explorations & insights, you'll stumble upon a few of your own.

p.s. i'm not actually gonna use my Patreon money for lemonade & cigarettes, i just wanted to name my tiers after cute & cheeky things that i love!
