T.L. Cowan

T.L. Cowan is a writer, performer, activist, and professor currently living in Brooklyn, New York. Primarily a cabaret artist, Cowan has performed internationally, published widely, and created several provocative audio and video recordings. During a decade on the Canadian prairies, she created The Twisted She Project, a collaborative, multimedia exploration of the comedy, horror, humiliation, and pleasures of contemporary queer femininity. Recently, Cowan has begun two new major projects. The first, GLITTERfesto, is a call to political performance based on the premise that “social justice is fabulous”; the second, Forgiving Medjugorje: The Reconciliation Cycle, offers intermedia observations about religion, nomadism, sex, and money.
