Alex “Glamputee: Locust
Alex is a queer, Black biracial Glamputee, proudly offering you a…leg up on disability justice. Whether as a counselor, harm reductionist, pleasure activist, runway model, or film festival juror, Alex is serving up the 3 C’s (Curls, Crutches, & Claws), while singing the praises of the disability justice movement any chance he can get. Alex has set out to use his platform to center the voices of Black and brown, queer, disabled folks while weaving together the principles of this movement with other justice efforts to promote access, sustainability and wholeness in all of our collective liberation work. www.glamputee.com
LOTUS BOY (Ze/Zir, He/Him, They/Them) is a shapeshifting, transgender and nonbinary, unapologetically disabled, Chinese-American drag king and multidisciplinary artist who performs in occupied Tamien Ohlone, Huichin Ohlone, and Ramaytush Ohlone Land (Bay Area, CA). Ze explores gender fluidity, accessibility, healing from trauma, and rage, through the mediums of poetry, lipsync, ancestral movement (qi gong and tai chi), monologue, and original music. King LOTUS BOY’s work uplifts issues regarding ableism, anti-Asian racism, transphobia, and sustainability, often incorporating humor as a vessel of universal connection. With every performance, they aim to help the audience learn—or unlearn—something.
