Elisha came out so late. When she was 26 she dumped her fiance and moved to Berlin, which started a sharp learning curve including lesbian squat houses, queer trailer parks, transgender pride parades and an Ethical Slut reading group. She has since played in Drag King circuits from Berlin to Jerusalem, illustrated for queer zines in London and Vienna and proudly promotes a queer-people-of-colour weekly party in Toronto called Fresh to Def. She draws a comic strip called 100 Butches which has been featured in queer magazines in Australia, England, Austria and the U.S. and will be published as a book in April 2010.
