I had to explain StarKid to an editor yesterday, and I thought “which of my pieces is the most descriptive of StarKid world” and I pulled up Billboard, without realizing it was one day from the year anniversary of this day.
Writing this piece was really important to me, both as encapsulating the StarKid experience for fans and non-fans alike, but also for me personally in my further quest to better myself as a journalist. It also was one of the first times I got to spend considerable time with some people who are now truly dear and wonderful friends. StarKid is community, and I’m thankful for the way it welcomed me with open arms and made me push to be a better version of myself.
I am excited to be back at HOB next week for another fun Billboard feature, but not at all excited about dealing with those stairs.
