Bollywouldn’t is a catchphrase decolonised; it is an imagining of utopia and reclamation of power. Bollywouldn’t deconstructs all the "-isms" in the Bollywood genre, giving agency back to South Asians, particularly those marginalised within our cultures through sexuality and gender identities. Working predominantly in felt-tip pen—aka ‘texta’—TextaQueen positions Bollywouldn’t as a balm to diasporic displacement.
