I am an organizer, booker, DJ and performer.
Currently I am the artistic director at SchwuZ, one of the largest queer clubs in Berlin, that has existed for 40 years. Besides organizing varying parties for a diverse LGBTIQ audience I conceptualize and organize a wide range of events such as concerts, shows, exhibitions, film screenings and panel discussions.
I hold a master’s degree in gender studies and philosophy and have been involved in queer activism and event organization since 2005. This includes festivals, conferences, shows, parties, fundraising-events and workshops. I am the host/emcee at different shows, political events, rallies and panel discussions and I have performed solo and in groups and also appeared in movies, documentaries, music-videos and theatre plays.
As a genderqueer trans*man my creativity is to some extent consumed by the survival in the everyday life but also fueled by the will to change a heteronormative system and stand up against intersecting forms of discrimination.
