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.

The QueerAgendaYVR Manifesto


The Manifesto.

  1. Guided by an ethics of incommensurability— settler futurity is relinquished for a decolonization elsewhere.
  2. ‘Vancouver’ is in need of some healing.
  3. Healing is not possible without challenging the structures– like capitalism–that create and normalize inequity in our society.
  4. Healing encompasses fun, joy, rest and pleasure.
My mom calls me her anti-capitalist daughter.

The QueerAgenda YVR is an ethical intervention to create possibility for a socially just ‘Vancouver’. It is informed from my lived experience as a brown queer cis-settler nurse working in the DTES and my degree in gender, race, sexuality and social justice.
