As a femme queer person with lots of femme invisibility, I wanted my name to reflect my queerness and my love of halloween/spooky/creepy freaky femmes I identify with. With Christina Ricci as one of my roots, Lezzie Borden was a natural choice.

I literally could not skate before starting with PFM. PFM taught me everything I know!

After watching Windy City Rollers in 2015, I felt like the derby community was "my people" but I wasn't sure I was tough enough. A year later, two of my friends joined their city's teams and encouraged me that I could do it. I also needed a reminder of my badassery after going through a rough time and I'm super proud of what a year has done!
