Profile: Scarlet

You can call me… Scarlet

I identify as… Female in my daily life, male as a ‘character.’ I’m a biological female with long hair and a feminine shape, and I love to wear dresses, jewelry, and makeup.

But I almost always play male characters in plays, write from the perspective of male characters, relate to male fictional characters and historical figures, only dress up as male characters for events like Halloween, and daydream of my life as a man. I see myself as a late eighteenth century fop, and am constantly inspired by the Scarlet Pimpernel, master of disguise, in every aspect of my goofy life.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m a ‘she’ ‘her’ and all that jazz. When I am cast as a man in a play — which has happened sixteen times so far– or dressed up for an event, I like to be called ‘he’ or ‘him’ while I’m in costume/character. The highest compliment that can be paid me is when people believe I WAS a man after seeing me in a show or dressed-up in a costume.

I’m attracted to… Michael Sheen, David Bowie, Lucius Malfoy, Stephen Fry, and the portrait of Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill.

When people talk about me, I want them to… say whatever they feel and not hold back. And I’d love to hear the juicy gossip afterward!

I want people to understand… that the idea of ‘maleness’ is exciting and empowering to me, even though I am really quite girly in day-to-day life. Most of my friends are gay men, and I’ve been told I act more like a gay man than a straight female. I wouldn’t have a sex change for the world, and though I sometimes wish I were born male, I love the way I am.

About Scarlet
Scarlet isn’t really named Scarlet. She’s an actor, not an actress, and she loves her collection of pimp hats. Although American, she likes to speak as much like Jude Law as humanly possible.
