"You won't want to miss Queenie Bon Bon's show."
--Scarlet Alliance President, Elena Jeffries

DEEPLY LEISURED is a hybrid performance that spans the genres of stand up comedy, performance, lecture, and consciousness-raising story telling.

Queenie Bon Bon presents narratives detailing her deep love for her clients & coworkers, and the eternal joys and mysteries of working with bodies. She also shares stories on coming out as a sex worker to her mother, whorephobia and internet dating, and covering up when you peed on the carpet at your workplace. A tender and true look into her lived experience as a sex worker, coworker solidarity, as well as social and political issues surrounding sex work, DEEPLY LEISURED is full of intrigue and inspiration.

DEEPLY LEISURED: A Bridge to Understanding for Friends and Family

"Queenie's experiences were similar to my own. But I could never say these things in the way she could to some of the people who needed to hear it the most, the family members of sex workers, especially my own family members. I attended the show with my brother. He is aware of my work, but we don’t discuss it in detail….Seeing him laugh and be entertained by the sometimes trivial, sometimes complex problems sex workers face, was a way of having him hear the things I couldn’t say to him directly. And during Queenie’s fantastic performance, I knew my brother understood my work and appreciated what I did, and that meant the world to me." -- Estelle Lucas
