“Prepare yourself for the most lesbianic how-we-met story ever,” Alyssa warns. They were the only two lesbians at a mutual friend’s birthday party. They had been alerted to each other’s presence, and were both on the lookout for the “other lesbian” at the bash. They finally met and exchanged numbers, but neither one had much time for dating, as they were both currently directing their own separate productions of The Vagina Monologues. Months later, they reconnected at SaySo!, a sexual assault speak-out. They had their first date at Cubby Hole, but Scout couldn’t drink because she had her Miss America interviews the next day. Alyssa drank enough for the both of them, and Scout graciously offered to shepherd her home. The rest, as they say, is herstory. Scout is currently creating On My Reel, an homage to her three days of reality stardom on A Shot at love with Tila Tequila. She and Alyssa join forces in their new original musical theater piece, SCOUT! Their romantic touchstone: “We have a song we wrote together called ‘Sex and Booze,’ about the only two things we have in common.”
