Carla Rossi – Portland’s premier drag clown – has taken over Anthony’s life and Anthony would like it back now. Anthony’s identity is a confused tangle of Native American/white/queer, and Anthony grew up looking to the Indian princess Tiger Lily from Peter Pan for cultural guidance. Looking for Tiger Lily is a kaleidoscopic, funhouse trip, following Anthony’s quest to find validation as a real Native artist – where the artist and the muse can coexist.
