Shakina returns to Joe’s Pub for the world premiere of Manifest Pussy!
A journey of trans* liberation that follows the time leading up to and through Shakina's gender transition. Weaving together songs and stories from her previous tour de force solo musicals One Woman Show and Post-Op, Manifest Pussy blurs the lines between the sacred and profane. Combining storytelling with cutting edge spoken word, and glitter-rock vocals featuring original songs by Julianne Wick Davis, Joel Waggoner, Zoe Sarnak, Joe Iconis, Nikko Benson, Sam Salmond, Michael R. Jackson, Teresa Lotz, Lauren Marcus, Shaina Taub and more!
Shakina's performances at Joe's Pub will bookend her tour to North Carolina, where she plans to present Manifest Pussy in support of the LGBT community and their allies working to combat state-wide discrimination.
