Virginia Suicide, aka Flynn Witmeyer, is a writer, actor, and filmmaker living in San Francisco. In 2007 he directed his first short film, Imp of Satan, which received media accolades for “saving queer horror film from the clutches of mediocre types hell-bent on tearing it down.” (Flavorpill Magazine, September 2007).
He recently directed the feature film Tweaker with an Axe, currently in post-production, for Synchronium Films. Flynn has appeared in over 20 stage productions and worked with notable Bay Area theatre companies such as Pisces Moon Productions and Elastic Future.
He regularly performs as a live cabaret singer and gender illusionist at numerous venues throughout San Francisco, including Red Hots Burlesque (SF Bay-Guardian's "Hottest Happy Hour in the Bay," Fridays @ El Rio), and Cocktailgate (SF Weekly's "Best New Drag Show," Sundays @ Truck Bar).
