Michelle/Ryan and Auckland Fringe present:

"Ze": Queer As Fuck!

A solo genderqueer, kinky, femmesexual, polyminded, gay-divorcee comedic odyssey through the real life of Michelle/Ryan.

"Ze" (a gender neutral pronoun) rips the bandage away from zir American puritanical upbringing in a multi-layered coming-out process. Along the way ze discovers a beloved community that at times is just as ridiculous and pigeon-holed as the one ze's left. Michelle/Ryan both uses and parodies the labels meant to help an individual embrace their truth in a modern world desperate for definition. 

"Ze" confronts stereotypes both within and without in a PRIDE-worthy celebration that exposes the complex tension between being authentic to oneself and belonging.
