Nurse Angélique

On May 11, 2022, I presented my inaugural performance of Nurse Angélique, a drag-burlesque work about Blackness in Canadian Nursing. I timed my performance for National Nursing Week, that is celebrated in May to honour a white old nurse (you know who I mean, and ‘Aunt Flo, you gotta go!’). I continue to perform this work; feel free to connect with me if you’d like to know more about it.
