Meet Mavis Vontrese
Since graduating from the University of Lethbridge’s Fine Arts department in 2017, Marshall Vielle has been working with Trickster Theatre and Making Treaty 7 while performing at local drag shows in Calgary.
As a two-spirit person, an Indigenous person who has both feminine and masculine qualities, Vielle had to do a lot of coming to terms with his gender identity.
Vielle's drag queen persona, Mavis Vontrese, allows him to express himself in a more feminine way.
