AVIV SHALEM AKA ASIS D'ORANGE
IS A GENDER-BLENDING FASHIONISTA DRAG PERFORMER
FROM TEL AVIV
As a genderqueer, Arab-Jew, raised in a religious household, Asis finds themselves in many intersections of society. By combining the conceptual and the glamorous with the various aspects of their identity, Asis pushes boundaries and gives stage to their beliefs (from feminism to veganism), while encouraging the world to let go of their hang-ups, find beauty in the banal, explore themselves and embrace their inner Queen.
Asis only knows how to walk on the wild side. Whether it's in their day-to-day or on
stage performing, Aviv is constantly breaking rules, changing the game and challenging norms - their aesthetic, their relations, their way of life would be considered by most subversion and transgression of the "acceptable."
