Inclusivity is the primary agenda for Dr Jiggs Bowson. She is very proud to have booked the very first Drag Artist to ever perform at Cheltenham Science Festival in 2017 – the scintillating Crystal Lubrikunt and performed for the Wellcome LGBTQ+ society for London Pride, 2017. Jiggs is committed to creating safe and welcoming science entertainment event for people identifying as LGBTQ+. Plus with queer venues under constant threat from closure, it is as important as ever to create LGBTQ+ inclusive spaces and get talented folks bookings and money (because people die of exposure).
