Siouxsie Q Signs with Ikigai Marketing + PR

Los Angeles, CA - Performer, writer, and activist, Siouxsie Q, signed with Ikigai Marketing + PR, bringing on Kristel Penn as her official publicist.

“Kristel gets me in a way that is rare,” said Siouxsie Q. “My career is a multi-faceted constellation of advocacy, politics, creativity, and sex--I don’t fit into boxes well. I’m excited to work with someone who has no desire to put me into one. Working with Kristel does, in fact, feel like getting sprinkled with pixie dust and taught how to fly. I feel so grateful for her hard work and belief in me.”

“I have so much admiration for Siouxsie and what she’s built for herself from the ground up,” added Kristel Penn. “She’s a force to be reckoned with because she’s demonstrated that her versatility extends beyond her on-screen presence. While we were deep in the trenches fighting Prop 60 here in California, Siouxsie was on the front lines as an advocate for our industry. She pours her heart and soul in everything she does and that kind of talent and authenticity is rare. It’s an honor she’s chosen me to accompany her on the adventure ahead.”  

Siouxsie got her start in the business dancing at the unionized, worker-owned, Lusty Lady Theater in San Francisco, and has worked as a performer in adult films since 2010, garnering multiple AVN Award Nominations and a Feminist Porn Award. She has served as the Director of Policy and Industry Relations for the Free Speech Coalition, the adult industry’s trade association, since May of last year. She is also a playwright, singer/songwriter, weekly columnist for SF Weekly, and creator of The Whorecast, her hit podcast showcasing the diverse voices of the adult industry. She has lectured extensively on sex and sex work, and is regularly quoted and featured in the mainstream media, including CNN, USA Today, Cosmopolitan, Wired, Alternet, Buzzfeed, and Fusion. Her debut book, Truth, Justice, and the American Whore, was published in 2016 through 3L Media to rave reviews.
