As a performance artist and musician I'm
As a a writer, activist, DIY media maker & teacher, textile artist & event curator
I roll out as Damien.
And it's Miss Hadassah D'Luxe
to some of you.
If you made it to my site you know that I like to be loud and unruly about liberation, bodies & sex, femininity and queers, and that I like to hate on the endless fake-ass wars abroad and in the USA in which oppressed people in this country are dying, and real death like oil & money keeps flowing to the privileged. But in case you didn't, there it is.
Yeah yeah Damien,
but what do you *do*?
