Artist and social commentator LaQuisha St Redfern – LaQuisha St Redfern is the drag alter ego of gender nonbinary identified Conrad (Connie) Johnston. LaQuisha lives on Space Station 1 in geosynchronous orbit about Wellington, New Zealand with her trusty pussy cat Cuddle Unit 5. Conrad was born and raised in Ngāruawāhia in the heart Tainui and the Kīngitanga. His whakapapa links him tribes in England and Scotland, though not to Māori waka, who traversed the vast distances of the pacific guided by the stars, like some great interstellar fleet. If pressed about pronouns she for LaQuisha and Connie. But never he for LaQuisha.
