Mighty Sarah Johnson

A reporter with polymorphous powers investigates the day-to-day reality of sexual and gender minorities at Polytechnique Montréal. Eyebrows raised.

Mighty Sarah Johnson dépose son mémoire sur la table

Sarah Johnson invites you to attend the tabling of her memoir, a performative public presentation in which she will reveal the results of her undercover intervention at Polytechnique in collaboration with the POLY-OUT committee.

As summer is coming to an end, students are away and most organizations are still closed for another few weeks. However, Sarah's activism and commitment are keeping her busy. In fact, our superheroine is already preparing for her first day at Polytechnique Montréal(!!!), or at least she's already stressing about her back-to-school looks.

In partnership with the POLY-OUT committee, Sarah Johnson will put on a handful of performances on the Mount-Royal campus this fall.  She presents herself as a reporter with polymorphous powers, questioning the day-to-day reality of sexual and gender minorities at Polytechnique Montréal. Eyerolls expected.

Embracing that gender role, Sarah Johnson sets out to meet future engineers: those who, in the not-so-distant future, will find themselves in a position to decide and create the infrastructure of our shared spaces.

Sarah Johnson would like to extend her heartfelt thanks to the POLY-OUT committee for agreeing to embark in this experiment with her. She would also like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts for its support.

Sarah Johnson is a young graduate from Rosemere who has just arrived in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Her valley girl looks only appeal to those who merely know her superficially. Indeed, behind this barely caricatured facade lies a committed and reckless Super Reporter, who gives a hard time to prejudices during the day, but who also knows how to wiggle in the downtown hot spots at night.

She gets her boldness from the cinematic icons featuring the art of guts: Erin Brockovich, the Campus Bunny, Cindy Campbell, Isabelle Huppert in Elle, Kimberly Hart, and not forgetting Thelma and Louise to name a few. Although she is slowly mastering her body and her new role as a reporter, she is not above attracting attention to get what she wants.
