Monique Jenkinson

Monique Jenkinson (Fauxnique) is a multi-genre performing artist and choreographer whose work uses drag to consider the performance of femininity as a powerful, vulnerable and subversive act. She and her drag queen alter ego Fauxnique have created and performed in such varied venues as the Stud Bar, City Hall, YBCA and de Young Museum in San Francisco; the New Museum, Judson Church and the Stonewall in New York; and in New Orleans, Seattle, Provincetown, Reykjavik, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, London, Rome, Catania and Zürich. Fauxnique’s acclaimed solo cabaret show The F Word will play NYC’s Joe’s Pub in January 2017 for the Feminist Press Feminist Ball and she will be a resident at Headlands Center for the Arts Summer 2017.
