Heels on Wheels 2012

Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow tours the US annually with a dazzling cabaret of performance art works by queer folks on femme/inine spectrum genders. The tour consists of five performers and our femme roadie, always includes local acts, and travels in a van full of magic, living the dream via live performance, local discussions, and guerilla political interventions as we go!

By actively complicating what it “looks like” to represent femininity, dandyness, fey, femme and queer lady, and so confronting misogyny and sexism, the Heelz are on a feminist agenda that uses cultural works to sabotage the hegemonic status quo of gender, sexuality, and appearance and replace it with many visions and ideas of what thriving and surviving as femme folks can be.

The 2012 tour features dazzling troublemakers Heather Acs, Damien Luxe, Shomi Noise, Geppetta, and Najva Sol, with visual artist Lixanne Disaster. We’re getting in our dreamy van for this trip April 6-14, 2012!
