ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
BOYS BE GOOD

ARMANDO LOPEZ BIRCANN
Native to the Caribbean & USA's media culture, Armando works in an age of techno-wizardry. Wielding enchantment through shadows & light, he believes creative practices are capable of reaching out past race & culture. Challenging heteronormativity comes first hand. He is eager to question the posed and pose until questioned! 

JASON EDWARD TUCKER
A nomadic west-coaster, Jason focuses on challenging the gaze through a concealment and confounding of the spectacle of gender and constructed identity. His work is both both fixed and performative, and advocates for the idea that gender and external identity are both performances - a series or system of repetitive actions honed by centuries of imposed social precedents. One rarely feels more like oneself than from behind a mask.

PUSSY NOIR
Ms. Noir's performances merge high cabaret sensibilities with femme-inspired genderfuck fashion iconographies. Her burlesque-inspired performance work presents a saccharine, colorful and vivid critique of the role of womanness in culture and narrative.

GEPETTA a/k/a ADELAIDE WINDSOME

Windsome utilizes dark & whimsical fairy tales to confront themes of trauma and grief, depression and suicide, and the beauty of survival.

SHOMI NOISE
Shomi is a musician, DJ, zine writer, and a self-proclaimed music nerd. She is heavily influenced by Riot Grrrl, D.I.Y., and Queercore sounds of the 90s and likes to mix these genres up with Southern Crunk music, top 40 pop, electro, house, hip-hop, reggae, and anything else that gets people dancing. Shomi Noise is known for creating interesting and catchy song mashups and has DJed in various different venues throughout New York City.

NAJVA SOL
Najva is a Iranian-American writer, photographer, multimedia artist, and performer. She was born in the DC area, and moved to NYC at the impressionable age of 17 to receive her BA from the New School. Subsequently, she tried to get her MFA at CCA in SF but found it more poetic to drop out. In 2008, she co-founded an artist collective called The Lowbrow Society for the Arts in NYC, where she curated various underground events, including a renegade art show on a subway car and (most recently) the Gowanus Art Fair. She is currently helping produce vintage inspired parties at Gemini & Scorpio and just finished a one-month artist residency at Elsewhere Collaborative in Greensboro, NC
