Help the Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow go on our third annual tour, a dazzling cabaret of art by queer femme/inine spectrum folks!

Heels on Wheels Glitter Roadshow tours the US annually with a dazzling cabaret of performance art works and acts of resistance by queer folks on femme/inine spectrum genders. The tour consists of five performers and our femme roadie, always includes local acts, and travels in a van full of magic, living the dream via live performance, local discussions, and guerrilla political interventions as we go!

The 2012 tour features performers Heather Acs, Damien Luxe, Shomi Noise, Geppetta, and Najva Sol, with wrangler/visual artist Lizxnn Disaster. We’re getting in our dreamy van for this trip April 6-14, 2012! Our calendar is here!

By actively complicating what it “looks like” to represent femininity, dandyness, fey, femme and queer lady, and so confronting misogyny and sexism, the Heelz are on a feminist agenda that uses cultural works to sabotage the hegemonic status quo of gender, sexuality, and appearance and replace it with many visions and ideas of what thriving and surviving as femme folks can be.

Please pre-buy tickets and merch by donating to our kickstarter, help by putting us in touch with friends, places to stay, college or university student organizations who could be a good match … and come out to the show!

All kinds of femmes are invited to the Heels on Wheels party, and the troupe works from an active anti-oppression, intersectional focus, both in who is touring and what they’re doing onstage. The tour includes working class and poor folks, sex workers, immigrants, QPOC, mixed race folks, genderqueer and GNC folks, survivors and, most importantly, fiercely political feminist artists whose work weaves punk herstories, ineluctable facts, and wild costuming into escape artistry.

These are not lived experiences or stories that have enough venues, and we have lots of people excited to see us -- and that's why this tour is important -- Donate Now to help us get on the road!

Our fearless performers rampage across the femme-inine spectrum-from hi-femme to femmedrogyny, dandy darling to ladybeast — serving up poetic theatre, silly buggery, dark whimsical puppetry, and rocknroll you can sink your heels into! Stillettos fly and fairytales fracture as we travel through space, time, and stardust.
