Since 2003, The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins has been wowing audiences with her sexually charged classic striptease. This Queen of Queer Burlesque has graced stages from London, England to Paris, Kentucky. Ms. Jenkins is so electric she’s the very reason the lights went down in Georgia. She puts the Gee! In LGBT and is the sexiest thing to ever go bump in your night! This is her 2nd time working on the Performance Committee for Femme Conference and she is super crunk to help showcase amazing performance artists from all sorts of femme communities.
The Lady Ms. Vagina Jenkins has been called “Atlanta’s Best Burlesque Dancer”, has been part of the production team for Mondo Homo Queer Arts and Music festival since its inception, and is currently at work learning to make gigantic showgirl style feather headdresses from her new Los Angeles home. Be sure and check www.VaginaJenkins.com for more vagiant happenings!

Cherry has helped shape the Femme Conference for several years, serving as Performance Chair in 2008, and on the Performance Committee in subsequent years.
Tanisha Johnson aka Monet Magnolia has been driving audiences wild with authentic burlesque striptease since 2008, but has been a drag performer out of the womb. Understanding the sexuality and balance of burlesque, this performer brings strikingly different characters to the stage. Monet Magnolia is a sultry songbird, but Magnolia’s curves and shakes as she peels will make you holler for more. Employing fans and incorporating different dance styles, Monet Magnolia’s performances are a theatrical threat for the eyes and ears.
Coco Monroe – Baltimore Liason COCO MONROE is a mix of cultures, races, and places. Sex-positive, cause-driven, art loving, tree huggin’ southern gal. You can take the girl out of the south but can’t take the south out of the girl.
