A mixed-media artist, ALOK's work explores themes of trauma, belonging and the human condition. They are also the author of Femme in Public (2017), Beyond the Gender Binary (2020) and Your Wound/My Garden (2021), and have been honoured as one of HuffPost's Culture Shifters and NBC's Pride 50. 'Moves seamlessly among poetry, comedy, fashion and writing' (New York Times). 'Fierce, poetic beauty... the way they threaded together movement, poetry, technology and music reverberated long afterward' (Huffington Post).
