Brisbane-based performance artist Tiara the Merch Girl describes herself as a ‘Creatrix of Awesome’, with her work exploring issues of identity, gender, sexuality, race, and culture from the perspective of a female queer migrant minority. She’s performed across Australia and in New York and Seattle, and now she has her eyes set on queer mecca — San Francisco. Tiara’s accepted a three-month arts residency in the city, but is seeking financial support for her trip, and needs to raise $5000 in funds.
