About the Artist

Sparkle is a male-bodied, femme-identified genderqueer poet, faerie, nun and queer health advocate living in Seattle. She is a long time student at Bent, Seattle’s queer writing school. He has performed at Bent’s Annual Mentor Showcase for five years and TumbleMe’s production “And God Said Come Inside.” She is drawn to sparkly objects and seeks to embody the transformative power of glitter and love in action. He believes that the most radical and revolutionary act is learning to love our queer selves in all their magnificent glory. She identifies as an ex-Catholic Jew with a strong streak of Buddhist paganism.
