What makes you laugh?
Katja Alekseev: Definitely my friends! I think I have the most disturbed people around me with whom I can have a great time.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Katja Alekseev: Fly on vacation. I have such a terrible fear of flying that I urgently need to overcome. Until now I always went on holiday by car or train. Otherwise, I'm actually a person who does everything I want to do.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Katja Alekseev: There are many people who have positively influenced me. But if I had to choose one person now, I would like to mention my best friend.
I used to be a very different person. I was partly very ashamed of my sexual desire. In the past I would never have spoken openly about my sex life, let alone blogged about it. She has tickled my current openness out of me with very long and frequent conversations, which for a long time bubbled deep somewhere in me. She also strengthened my self-love for my body. I would probably have become an established person in this respect on my own, but by no means as quickly as I have become with her support. I am really very grateful for this encounter and the relationship with this wonderful person. Generally, I have a few friends who push me a lot on the level.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Katja Alekseev: Since I am a member of the party DIE PARTEI, I would like to say at this point that we will not only make the lives of people with disabilities more bearable, if not very beautiful, once we come to power!
But my personal first official act would be to guarantee the personal assistance of all people with disabilities who depend on it. A life in dignity within one's own four walls must not be a nerve-wracking struggle.
