Sheer Obsession AKA Ollie Musson is a Sheffield born, queer & trans artist, living and working in Reading. Their practice has a heavy influence in drag and cabaret, using film, sound and text to create surreal narratives of transformation through gender, health and trauma. These moments occur in the intersections of mental and physical illness, critiquing standards of health through expanding on (dis)ableist frameworks of bodily experiences. Notions of rest and recovery lay alongside an embodied trans experience of gender, creating an intersectional Queer and Crip strand of research.

Ollie is a co-founder of queer arts collective Double Okay, running queer arts events across Reading as a form of resistance and solidarity. Double Okay currently run and curate the performance night u slip into, which began on 09.02.19, consisting of local queer/LGBTQ+ artists.

As Sheer Obsession, Ollie always runs DIY and grassroots drag night, Sheer Obsession’s Suspenders at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading.
