Calendar Model: Amber
Amber is a very wise 26yo Scorpio/Sagitarius originally from I'm from Atlanta but was born in Japan and lived in Hawaii, Louisiana and Delaware. Military brat..can you tell?. Amber has lived in Graduate Hospital in Center City for I came to Penn a few years ago for graduate school and I decided to buy a house and stay. and works as a I have two jobs I love. My day job: I work at Penn, helping to get underrepresented high school students into college. My super queer night job: co-producer of the fabulous Stimulus Party which takes place every 3rd Friday at the Loft above Marathon Grill at 10th and Walnut.
I love reading, dancing and driving around with the expressed intention of getting lost.
I spend a lot of time out and about so I really value the opportunity to decompress and relax. For those times, I'm always listening to neo-soul artists. However, when I'm out, I love a good dance tune. I shamelessly and proudly declare myself a Lady Gaga fan.
Football has always been my favorite sport to play and watch.
Twenty manning is my favorite place in the city. It's close to my house and the food is always delicious. For a more casual experience, I love the Marathons on 10th and 40th.
Favorite Gay Hangout:
The Stimulus Party is my all-time favorite gay hangout. I always say that even if it wasn't my party, I'd be there every 3rd Friday. I've been going to women's events for many years in Philadelphia and I always wanted more. Stimulus has the diversity, class, energy and overall ambiance I felt like Philly's nightlife was lacking. And the unparalleled beauty at the party never hurts :-)
Favorite Straight Hangout:
A PhillyBloco concert. They are an incredible Philadelphia based 22-piece Brazilian dance band. Their concerts are full of such energy and positivity that you can't help but smile and dance the whole way through.
Best part of Philly:
Even though Philly is an old city with a rich national history, it often feels so young. It has the spirit of an emerging city, right on the brink of realizing its greatness. That's exciting to me.
Ideal First Date:
The traditional dinner and a movie is safe but if you're really trying to get to know a person on a first date, I think it's better to do something more active. Take a walk on Kelly Drive or volunteer with an organization in Philly. It's creative and you can learn a lot about a person through their commitment to service.
What is Amber looking for in a partner?
Kindness. It may sound like a cliche but one can never overestimate the importance of a good, kind heart in a partner. Watch not how they treat you but how they treat others in their life. When the looks fade and the body sags, a kind heart will always endure.
