Duration: 55 mins
Summoned into this world by the power of fierce femmes, gender rebels, trans-formers and beautiful queerdos, drag deity Glitterfist is on a mission to absolve shame, inspire worship and spread the gospel of pleasure, freedom and filth. Glitterfist and fellow divine non-binary babes Jessica McKerlie (Gender Spanner) and Six Inches Uncut (TAINT Cabaret) will seduce you with a surreal drag-burlesque tale of exploration and fantasy. Arrive curious and you will leave converted...
Dive into Glitterfist's hedonistic origins as they search for connection, get lost in desire, smacked hard with reality and discover a thirst for resistance. Glitterfist's imaginative storytelling creates a vibrant, sacred world that celebrates diverse genders and sexualities and playfully encourages audiences to join Glitterfist and worship themselves. Surrender to glamdrogynous seduction and find your own divinity in the cheekiest, filthiest ways imaginable.
