Pleased to meet you!

To the readers and writers of "Queering Yerevan,"

This is my first official post and I would like to thank everyone for inviting me! I will be in Hyastan exactly one month from yesterday. I am a visual artist using photography, video, installation and performance art working with themes of gender identity, the accuracy of historical representations, myth-making, bodily limitation, power dynamics, queerness, oppression and diasporan identity.

Here are a couple of my video pieces from the past several years--

  1. Nice to see some of your work, Melissa! Though our Boston meet-up didn't work out, I'm happy to read that you'll be in Hayastan — I'll finally get to meet you in person :))))
