About Queen of the Oil Patch
Massey Whiteknife is a Two-Spirit person who built a multi-million-dollar company in the rugged oil city of Fort McMurray. When his businesses are hit hard by a series of disastrous events, Massey introduces an idea that will test the boundaries of acceptance in Oil Country: Iceis Rain, an award-winning female recording artist.
The thing is, Iceis Rain and Massey Whiteknife are the same person. Massey dreams of someday transitioning into Iceis Rain full-time. But he’s afraid of how it will affect his business, and more importantly, how it will affect the people he loves — namely his mother.
As they rebuild their business, Massey and Iceis set out to reconnect with their Indigenous culture, exploring the origins of what it means to be Two-Spirit in today’s world. They meet with Two-Spirit Elders, medicine men, a United Church pastor, trans-native pioneers, and even journey back into nature to find answers.
