'Heels On Wheels,' Queer Femme Art Group, Launches Tour

Courtesy Heels On Wheels

Heels on Wheels is a New York City-based queer femme art extravaganza that will be taking their work on the road later this month.

It is an intersectional and collaborative body of work produced by a group of queer artists and performers who embody the mentality that art can change the world. The tour is a combination of multi-media, literary and performing arts, music, participatory art that seek to complicate the question: what and who are queer femmes?

"I had a vision in which queer folks anywhere on the feminine spectrum -- fey fags, high femmes, hard femmes, dandy genderqueers and more -- could present high-quality interdisciplinary artwork that people would listen to and be inspired by that was not writing or burlesque, which have their own tours and niches," Damien Luxe, co-producer Heels on Wheels, said in a blog post. "As working-class folks we knew we’d have to find a way to get this work into the world on our own, so like punks we started independently booking and touring the US in 2010."

The six performers touring with Heels On Wheels are Damien Luxe, Heather Ács, Shomi Noise, Sabina Ibarrola, Angel Nafis, Alvis Parsley, Lizxnn Disaster.
