About a year ago, I was part of a group of CDs consulting The Candy Store on ideas for raising funds for this prospective television show. October 21, 2022 was the world premier of the pilot episode! It was in New Jersey. I figured what the heck, so I drove there for the evening’s festivities.
I left about 8:00 AM and drove for about six and a half hours. I then checked into my hotel, cleaned up some emails and went about getting ready. The evening started at 7:00 PM and I arrived a few minutes after. I knew exactly no one.
I checked in and immediately began making friends. There were a number of other girls like myself there, but the cis folks seemed to have more interest in me. I helped a lovely blind woman, a friend of the show’s creator and star, get something to eat. I met a couple, the gentleman is a fellow actor and was in the pilot. I befriended a widow and sat with her during the show. I was in my element, not shy at all, talking with so many people.
I was a part of quite a few photos, most of which I did not control, so I may never see them.
I was able to spend a lot of time with Mindy, the star and show creator, as well as Mike, the director. It was made clear to them by yours truly that they should include me in future shows! We’ll see….
After the show I stayed until they were sweeping up, chatting up a few sisters, both of which don’t get the ability to get out like I do.
I am very happy I took the risk of driving so far and knowing no one. If nothing else, I had a ball. And you never know what these connections will lead to!
