Toni Latour is a multidisciplinary artist based in Vancouver, Canada. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally since 1994, and has been awarded numerous grants and awards in support of her practice. She teaches Media Art at Capilano College. The work published in this issue is excerpted from The Drag King Project. The two Vancouver King troupes she worked with, DK United and $3 Bill, explore constructs of masculinity from a variety of perspectives, giving a better understanding of the fluidity of gender and sexual identities. Overall the project aims to expand queer Canadian representations and to mark a time of celebration of transsexual, transgender, and King visibility. Readers of Xtra West have nominated Toni Latour for a 2007 Hero Award in the category of Artist of the Year.
