Jesus Camp Queen

Angela J Latham


Jesus Camp Queen is an autoethnographic performance (comprised of text and video) about the author/performer’s formative experiences as a member of a fundamentalist Christian sect and particularly the gendered nature of her faithfulness to its religious values. Latham relates her “successful” embodiment of a culturally prescribed femininity as evidenced by her selection as “queen” of a fundamentalist church camp and later as a member of a queen’s court at a church-affiliated college. Ultimately, her disaffection with “fundamental femininity” culminates within yet another court ceremony marked by the tragic death of one of its participants.
