Liv Hnilicka is a Midwest based performer, writer, comedian, and advocate for TBLG identified people. As a graduate of Second City, she has performed at Annoyance Theatre, UIC, Depaul, and MCA. She also was a regular contributing artist to Chicago's underground drag and burlesque communities, collaborating with organizations like Chances Dances, Salonathon, and Northern Lights. She also loves her puppy Madame Chang and roasted brussels sprouts.

Ell Feldhahn is a south minneapolis-grown artist who works to utilize the stage as a platform for education, representation, and other forms of meaningful creative expression. Integral to their artistry is their identity as a non-binary, indigenous femme, a two-spirit Cherokee promoting intersectionality with a thriving affinity for all things queer. Ell has experience with the Youth Performance Company, toured with Blank Slate theatre, worked and performed with the Young Artist's Council, and been involved in numerous other projects throughout the Twin Cities.

Addison Sharpe is an interdisciplinary performance artist, poet and activist from Minneapolis. Their work -- informed by their experience as a queer, non-binary, neuroatypical femme -- demonstrates an ever-morphing attempt to subvert constructs of all kinds. They have performed throughout the Midwest, most notably at The Neo-Futurarium, Salonathon (Chicago's home for underground, emerging and genre-defying art), and the Minnesota Fringe Festival.
