“Selene Luna — who delivered almost 30 minutes of impressive, fresh takes on being a little person, being an atheist who’s afraid of ghosts and being in a committed relationship with a “normal-sized” guy.”

“…she is awesome, she is hilarious, she’s beautiful and as an entertainer, she’s so incredibly diverse…”

…Selene Luna is a Gen X version of Marlene Dietrich. Just a couple inches shy of 4 feet in height, she exudes a feral sensuality. Selene Luna, Bad-ass goddess of the night.”
