Her Ottawa stop will be a FREE show on Saturday, June 13th at Venus Envy. The show will start at at 7:30pm, will feature local performers Allison Armstrong and Kalyani Pandya, and will include a sex-positive write-in (audience non-mandatory participation, YAY) during the show.
There will be love-letters to queerdom, poetry about queer history, femme identity, modeling, & sexwork, short stories told and read, and, as the flyer puts it, a whole lot of “sex, sass, humour, and healing”.
In short, you should all come.
FREE show ft Amber Dawn, Kalyani Pandya, and ME!

Go take a peak at these three poems by Trish Salah, up at Feminist Wire.
They touch on disputed and contested bodies, ivory towers, power structures, and stollen countries.
I think you’ll like them.
I’m hella excited, because I’m a gender nut with a love of dyke history, and Jan will be telling Who Wants the Dress, which is all about coming out (to oneself and others), and coming to terms with the different layers of one’s identity. The performance blends one of the stories from Sara Maitland‘s Angel Maker anthology with Jan’s own tale of coming out – first as a lesbian, and then as butch.
Kate Hunt saw this piece performed a while back at Once Upon a Slam, and she’s written a post about the show just in time for Jan’s appearance at VoV. Go read it and see what you think, then come out and see us on Wednesday! 😀
