VIDEO: Djuan Trent Feelin’ Herself at A-Camp Will Give You All the Mountain Feels

A-Camp may be over, but that doesn’t mean the feelings from the mountain have to end! (Or the glitter. I have done laundry three times since I’ve been home, but I still keep finding glitter everywhere!) If you were at camp this year, you remember Djuan Trent slaying as a performer and making everyone’s days better and brighter with her wit and her smile. You also remember her selfie stick. She took her selfie stick everywhere! And now you know why: She was documenting the entire magical experience so she could set it to Beyonce and Nicki Minaj‘s “Feelin’ Myself” and share it with us, to make the mountain last all year!

Makes you hungry for some ancient grains, huh?

  1. so much flawless in this video.

    every flawless. all flawless that there is on earth. all the love.

    I really can’t words righ tnow. TAKE ME BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN

    • brb sending this to every queer I know who I am trying to convince to come experience camp

      • It’s working. One friend has already commented: “This video may have convinced me to start saving for next year…”

        Trent, you are an amazing magician.

  2. 1) I love Trent.
    2) I love Autostraddle.
    3) I love A-Camp.
    4) I have never liked selfie sticks, but I think I finally understand them and I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t a little interested in getting one now. Solely because of Trent.
    5) Everyone is so gorgeous and perfect.

  3. was just starting to feel OK after being away from camp for so long. was just starting to get back to normal. now I’m chin-deep in feels & starry-eyed twitterpatedness.

    I wasn’t ready for this. but this video is everything.

  4. Just when I thought I could get through a day without wanting to go back to the mountain! Everyone is so gorgeous and this video is perfection.

  5. I will quote what I said in our beehive group:



  6. god, i got to be co-counselors with Trent and the selfie stick. it was glorious. legit had crushes on them both.

    all of a-camp is gorgeous. i love this video so much.

    laura in black lipstick forever,plz.

  7. Raise your hand if you bought a selfie stick immediately after A-Camp.

    Raise your other hand too if it was Trent’s fault.

    -raises both hands-

  8. brb CRYING

    this is amazing. thank you for documenting that glorious group hug with me and carolyn and wunmi from so many angles <3

  9. I’m with everyone else on the “I was finally making it through my feelings” phase. No longer.

  10. Honorable mentions: bone crusher killing the game, kaylah’s heart shaped sunglasses, laura’s black lipstick, mal’s yellow pants, emily gigler in general, adorble burger eating, liz making cotton candy, the family band, and every hug that was captured. I’ve been waiting days for this video. This is exactly what I needed after drinking boxed wine and talking about camp for four hours last night. Thanks Trent!

  11. I am crying alone in a very public place and I don’t even mind. Bless y’all and love y’all, every one <3

  12. Now I have a way to explain camp to people: I’m just gonna show them this video. Perfection!!

  13. I bet this is fantastic, I already love this video although I have never seen it because YOUTUBE. there is a lot of stuff you can’t watch on youtube from Germany. :(
