Nico Dacumos??? THE Nico Dacumos?!  Oh, yes, the one and only…..

He most recently performed for the National Queer Arts Festival in 2007 & 2008 in “Insurgency: Queer Mixed Bodies,” “El cuerpo habla y ensegna,” “Representaciòn,” “Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots, and “Transforming Community.” He has performed at venues such as the Writer’s Village stage at San Francisco PRIDE, Koret Auditorium at the San Francisco Public Library, City Lights Books, Galerìa de la Raza, and Highways Performance Space in Los Angeles. Nico also develops workshops exploring race, queerness, sex, and love, which have been presented for UC Davis, Mount Holyoke and Smith Colleges, Sistersong, Georgians for Choice, Body Positive Atlanta, and Femme Conference 2006. This coming October he will tour with the Mangos with Chilis QTPOC Traveling Cabaret. His written work appears in the anthology Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity.
