About the Panelist - DeeDee Queen

DeeDee Queen is a drag queen trapped in a cis-woman’s body—a performing woman who is performing “woman.” DeeDee Queen is rewriting her story, disrupting Diet Culture, and taking down the patriarchy by taking off her clothes in body positive burlesque, pole dance, and drag performances and classes around California’s Bay Area (and beyond!). She recently took home a gold medal for “Entertainment” at the Pacific Pole Championships, and is a certified Pole Level 1 instructor through Elevated Education. She currently teaches body positive burlesque classes in person and over Skype.
