About

I am a queer drag performer, artist and moving image creator and have been working with and documenting the eclectic East London queer scene for the past five years. I graduated from University of the Arts London with a BA in Fine Arts (Print and Time-based media) and have since gone on to write and direct a series of my own films amplifying marginalised voices of in LGBTQI+ community. My first documentary project was entitled Drag is my Ecstasy, an intimate portrait of underground drag collective Sink the Pink, which was accepted into the program of the BFI Flare: London LGBT Film Festival in 2014 and screened at The East End Film Festival. Three of my short films centring on the LGBTQ+ lived experience have also been previewed on global arts video channel NOWNESS. In 2019 I directed ‘Il-Widna’ a reimagined reality of queer people banished from the UK after Thatcher’s Section 28 amendment. The film had its online premiere on i:D at the start of this year and has just been accepted into this year’s Fringe! Queer Film & Art Festival. Most recently I was selected as one of the 2020 FLAMIN artists.
