Jenkinson, Monique 300 by Robbie Sweeny

Monique Jenkinson

Monique Jenkinson is an artist, choreographer, performer and writer. Her work dwells at the intersection of contemporary dance, cabaret and essay, and considers the performance of femininity as a powerful, vulnerable and subversive act. Her alter-ego Fauxnique made herstory as the first cis-woman ever, anywhere, crowned as a pageant-winning drag queen, and her original works have toured nationally and internationally in wide-ranging contexts from nightclubs to theaters to museums. Her memoir, Faux Queen is out now on Amble Press.
