THIS MONTH'S MODEL is.... KATY JALILI (pronouns: they/them)
Katy Jalili (Katayoun Jalilipour) is a genderqueer Iranian born multidisciplinary artist, performer and writer. Katy’s performance work covers a variety of night club entertainment, comedy, cabaret and burlesque, live art and spoken word. Some have described Katy’s performances as provocative, terrifying, erotic, political and wickedly entertaining, whilst channelling the spirit of punk. They are the founder behind FemmiErrect, a club night dedicated to fighting femme erasure in queer spaces. They are also the co founder of Genderfvcker, a nonbinary drag competition started in 2018. Katy was named as one of the top 5 queer artists in 2017 by i-D.
Tuition on hand for those who fancy it. Complimentary drawing materials and paper provided. LGBTQIA+ models.
