Jessica loved playing dress up as a child, partly because their grandmother was a pro—she hosted tea parties for shut-ins and would arrive with bins of hats and gloves so everyone would look the part in tea party couture. Whenever Jessica and their sister would play at their grandmother’s house, they would always find their way into their aunts old prom dresses and pose for one another in their best attempt at ‘femme fancy’. Gregarious femme has thus always been important to Jessica. And since coming into their own as a queer performer in the Seattle scene,  that expression of femme has only intensified and diversified.
