Meet our Producer!
At the turn of the century, Julian A. Wolf (they/them) discovered and quickly became involved with the Leather/BDSM, goth, ENM, alternative music scene, and queer communities in New Mexico. Since then, their passion for service, education, creating and securing safe spaces for "alternative" folk, music and art have led them to event production, working nationally as a consent culture advocate and educator, and writing on these and related subjects.
They've worked in the southwest and beyond, MCing and co-producing events such as the Tucson Fetish Ball, performing in venues from theaters and gay bars to cemeteries, teaching on and in between both coasts and as far north as Canada for conferences and schools, and performing as an MC for everything from comedy nights to formal pageants.
Delighted to be working again with Southwest Love Fest, they feel like they're coming home. A longtime member of the Phoenix based Dragon Clan, whose credo is "Leather, Family,
Service, and Spirit!" Julian has served as a LGBT Titleholder as New Mexico Pride's Prince Julian, and as half of the first Rio Grande Leather titleholder lineage along with Daddy Ruben of Albuquerque. They are also "Mama's Prince Julian" of Mama's Family, and served as a longtime board member of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.
Their current projects include serving with the (regional Burning Man) Sunburn organizational team, creating as a live and visual artist based out of Santa Fe in the Land of Enchantment, maintaining their pagan-centric art and wares pop up shop and spiritual advisory business Addams-Wolf Divination, and establishing the intentional collection of creative queer radical artists: The House of Zebra Jasper.
An adventure with Julian Addams Wolf promises to be filled with creative exploration and flairs of hedonism. You can find them performing burlesque and on the microphone as the Veracious Vaudevillian Julian Addams, and you are encouraged to follow their adventures via social media on Instagram (@theJulianWolf), Facebook (/ProfessionalJulian, /CabaretAudacity) and Twitter (@JulianWolf).
Julian, a non-binary white person, is pictured looking up in wonder with their hand raised to their chin and standing with one leg raised resting on the seat imbedded in the white sculpted wall with large leaves and flower carved in it. Julian has black lipstick and is wearing an open black jacket with the hood up and their chest showing and black goth platform boots.
Introducing the House of Zebra Jasper!
The House of Zebra Jasper was founded in 2020 to compete in the Black and White Fetish Ball hosted by the Men of Onyx at Sidewinder's Ranch Black Cat Cabaret theater. The originators, both artists- one a Ballroom virgin and the other a regular in the scene, served black and white themed looks to the judges, coordinated effects, and their walk earned them their first trophy. Named after the marbled stone, the House of Zebra Jasper is an intentional collection of creative queer radicals whose anti-racist consent culture based art, activism and event production is intended to evoke consideration and offer perspectives that are likely to entertain and perhaps entice their audience and participants.
After celebrating two years on 2.22.22, they're thrilled to come out of the City Different and join SWLF to share with their fellow attendees and audience some of the Dazzling Ideas they've been developing over Lab-Nights and camping adventures.
HoZJ looks forward to welcoming you to connect over SWLF weekend, and connecting with you.
