Q is a multi-disciplinary artist living, learning, and dying on the traditional, ancestral, unceded Coast Salish territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish peoples. Among many notable performances, collaborations, and features, they have opened at Verses Festival of Words for The Body Is Not An Apology; co-written and performed with the frank theatre and Telling It Bent; collaborated with an aerial/trapeze artist for a circus cabaret; and co-headlined a curated show with Mitcholos Touchie. Q's work centres disability justice, crip activism, sex work, and queer liberation - along with all that meets at such topics' intersection - and is a self-proclaimed survivor, failure, and begin-againer.
Q is available as a source and writer interested in personal essays and poetry
