Queer, Transgender, Tamil, Sri Lankan, and American?

Who embodies all of the above? D’Lo, a performance artist and comedian based in the US, D’Lo has made quite the name for themselves touring internationally including right here in Toronto.  In a recent show I had the privilege of attending D’lo entertained and engaged the audience with the story of their coming out process, twice. D’Lo first came out as gay, then again as trans, to their Sri Lankan american family. Often when exploring cultural dialogues on sexuality we rarely move past gay/straight, if we even get there.  Check out this great feature on D’Lo’s rise to success, and their Journey there.

D’Lo: ‘I came out three times – as gay, as having a girlfriend and as trans’
