Zizi is going on their first outing to Edinburgh!
Come see her during the festival 2-26th August, Wednesdays and Saturdays, at Inspace - Crichton Street @zizidrag 
________

Zizi is a procession of faces of drag artists generated by data in constant transition, morphing and changing shape. Their gender, sexuality, whether they are real or artificial, is all uncertain. Here, the permanent becoming of a neural network represents the fluidity, ambiguity and transition of drag artists. The work is a celebration of difference, which invites us to reflect on bias in our data driven society.

Zizi is being shown as a seven screen installation commissioned by Experiential AI at Edinburgh Futures Institute and Inspace. Curatorial text courtesy of Drew Hemment @toodrew

My first ever gig as a Drag King was a sold out 1,000 seats. To be honest, I still haven't had the most luck breaking into that room. But thank you to @bigandmilky  for the opportunity to entertain the community for the last few weeks and give them what they want! Love to all of the amazing Kings out there, who are blessing this show with open arms!

I'm not religious, but I like to pretend like I am.
I had a beautiful day yesterday at @bartseloda  and was greeted with a wonderful "I Love You" from the crowd. Thank you for coming out to support us! -

I'm an atheist, but pray to the Transfiguration and Hail Mary celebrations before you go to the toilet.

Bitch I’m Alive and I’m Para. I’m Para Hard. I’m Para Hard because I’m not programmed to be a bitch and I’m Para Kicking and Tearing Up the Booty in this Pink Lil Pink Hair. I’m Para Kicking because I’m not good at kicking a ball. I’m not good with a punch, I’m not good with a punch, I’m not good with a punch. I’m not a good with a punch, I’m not even good with a yell, I’m not good with a tongue twang. 
I’m Para Kicking because I’m not good at kicking a ball, because I’m not good with a punch, and because I’m not good with a nose ring.

Don’t be frightened, be proud.

Aged 18 and a half.
Over the course of the next 5 days I will be taking a look at my body in relation to 60s and 70s era bodies and stereotypes from representations of body types. I will be talking about what it means to be 'agender', 'trans', 'non-conforming', 'oppressive', 'non-sex', and 'other'. GayTimes magazine's '50 Best Local LGBTQ Stories of 2013'
