Performance artist extraordinaire Monique Jenkinson inhabits the spaces between dance, theater, and drag. Her queen alter ego Fauxnique is a permanent fixture in the experimental art scene, and she’s the first woman to have won the Miss Trannyshack Pageant. Her solo shows, Faux/Real and Luxury Items, play to sold-out crowds and have garnered much critical acclaim. Jenkinson is a 2012 de Young Museum Irvine Artist Fellow and will be part of the Dance Discourse Project at the museum on Sept. 15. Also look for her show at CounterPULSE in November. Here, she names the best of SF's nightlife.
