Biography

Critic, curator, video maker. Trained at U. of T., York and Ryerson, Adams is an influential voice on the Toronto queer/arts scene. Her intelligent analyses and assessments of lesbian culture have appeared in print venues ranging from Take One to Fuse. During the 1990s, Adams was also involved in queer video production and often curated thematic programs at Inside Out and local galleries. One production venture was Excess Is What I Came For (with Paula Gignac, 1994, 5), a deliriously noir dream of Toronto dyke nightlife.
