It’s that time again! We’ve been taking applications for what seems like months now and we’ve finally chosen our 12th fundraising partner.
EVERYONE, MEET DUNHILL!
Who are you? Name, pronouns, whatever else you want/are comfy sharing.
My name is Dunhill Cabuhat. My pronouns are She/Her. I'm pansexual and polyamorous or "solo poly."
What surgery are you fundraising for?
This is for my breast augmentation or more commonly known as top surgery.
What’s your favorite FLAVNT product?
The pronoun tees are my favorite! I really want to get the hoodie one y’all came out with! Too cute!
If you could have any superpower in the world, what would it be and why?
Telekinesis?! Cause my selfie game would be lit AF! lol jk - i mean - not really, but the amount of good I'd be able to do with that power is limitless AND I'd be able to fly! I can go on about this! I'm a huge super hero nerd!
What’s your favorite animal?
Big cats! Lions, Tigers, - I really want a savannah cat. They're the largest domesticated house cat. A hybrid breed cross between a serval African wild cat and a domestic one. They can grow to be as heavy as 15lbs but I cannot justify paying a breeder for one when i can rescue an animal instead.
If they made a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
Selena Gomez?! Mostly because I want to meet her and I’m a huge fan. I also think she's an amazing artist.
Coffee or tea?
Tea. Coffee is like crack for me. It’s too strong. I can't.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Game. Hike. Create beautiful images with photography. I plan on picking up photoshop again sometime soon. Goals!
Where is your dream vacation?
There's an island in the Philippines called "Boracay." My mother use to tell me about it when i was younger. I'm sure it's changed a lot since then but I'm sure its still very beautiful and i'd love to visit one day.
What’s your favorite memory?
It's a memory I share with my dad, which is rare. It was back on Guam, where i was born and raised, in the middle of a typhoon. My dad, not his best idea, wanted to go out during the eye of the storm. So we did - I was probably 8 yrs old. It was the coolest thing I've seen. It was so still and quiet but I could see the storm all around us. We were only out there for a minute before my mom started yell and we ran back inside. It was unforgettable.
What’s your favorite color?
Maroon. I just love that shade of red or anything close to it.
What’s one thing you love about yourself?
My honesty. I value the truth above all things. Even if it hurts.
Who is your idol and why?
My mother. She's given her whole life to see that our family live a better life. She's done more for us than anybody I know. From moving her parents over to Guam from the Philippines and then making sure her brothers and their wives were able to follow. The strength she gave me is what helped me move stateside and live the life I have today. In many ways, I live my life because of her. To celebrate her. I miss her everyday. She passed away in 2016. Shortly after her passing, I came out as transgender.
Why did you apply with FLAVNT?
I applied with FLAVNT because y'all are doing exactly what I want to do for the trans community. Y'all are helping others live the life they want – they deserve. I think its such a beautiful thing and I'm so excited to be a part of it. Not just as a fundraising partner but as an ambassador as well. It is so important for us to live our life for those who are too afraid to live their own – for those who are not in a safe place and can't.
If you had the chance to meet anyone, dead or alive, who would you want to meet?
As of right now, Donald J. Trump. In a scenario, where I have Wonder Woman's "Lasso of Truth" around him. I want to so badly believe in the good he has. Please? No? Can I meet Beyonce?
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a comic book artist. I loved drawing and creating characters. I still kind of do.
Are you an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert?
I'm ambivert but I'd say I teeter on the extrovert side more. I love dancing in large crowds and being with friends and meeting new people.
Would you choose to go to a big party with a lot of people, or stay home and watch a movie with a few close friends?
Both? Can we do the movie in the afternoon and the big party with those friends that night? Can we get Taco Bell? I'm kidding I don’t eat Taco Bell but maybe vegan tacos?
What’s your favorite place to go in Austin?
The nature trails! I just downloaded "alltrails" an app to help me find ALL THE TRAILS and I’m so excited to use it when it gets warmer.
Are you a cat person or a dog person?
I'm a cat person-not to say that i don’t love dogs-but i own a cat sooo...
