Elisha Lim is a queer and transgender story-teller, comic illustrator, claymation filmmaker and graphic novelist – and has produced award winning short films, book tours, solo and group exhibits, curatorial projects and the launch of an annual Montreal art festival called “Qouleur.” The thread between all of these is Elisha’s driving passion to build pride, space and solidarity for queers who are Black, Indigenous and people of colour. Elisha holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Criticism and Curatorial Practice at OCAD University and a Masters in English Literature from the University of Toronto.
