Riverside Theatres Presents
Maeve Marsden’s
QUEERSTORIES
Hosted by Maeve Marsden, with Adrian Mouhajer, Laura Hart, Fahad Ali, Eda Gunaydin, Gloria Demillo and Jeremy Santos.

Returning to Riverside for its 4th year, Queerstories celebrates the culture and creativity of the LGBTQI+ community one true story at a time.

Vulnerable and fierce, hilarious and heartbreaking, Queerstories features incredible local storytellers sharing the story they want to tell, but are never asked to; unexpected tales of pride, prejudice, resilience and resistance.

A national storytelling project directed by Maeve Marsden, Queerstories has sold-out at festivals and independent venues around the country, with a book and an award-winning podcast boasting more than 250 stories.

Adrian Mouhajer is a non-binary lesbian Lebanese (Lesbanese) writer, fighter, and all-around class clown that never really grew out of it. They specialise in over-sharing and giving good hugs which surprisingly comes in handy when they fight because they prefer grappling over striking. They currently work at ACON as a Program Coordinator of Safety, Inclusion, and Justice, and they continuously overshare in a bid to promote having conversations regarding subjects normally viewed as too much for a Maccas drive-thru. They can be found posting food pics and simping at @adrian_alleles


Laura Hart is a drag king, comedian & improviser who has been performing for yonks. They are the founder and host of popular drag show The Kings & Drag King Bingo, and have toured around Australia and internationally. They perform and teach at Improv Theatre Sydney.

 


Fahad Ali is a molecular biologist, science educator, and writer. He is a member of the Palestinian diaspora, a co-founder of the Queer Solidarity Film Festival and the Muslims for Marriage Equality campaign group, and a community advocate and organiser.

 


Eda Gunaydin is a Turkish-Australian writer and researcher interested in class, race and diaspora. You can find her essays and creative non-fiction in Meanjin, The Sydney Review of Books and The Lifted Brow. She has been shortlisted for a Queensland Literary Award and the Scribe Non-Fiction Prize. She is currently Contributing Editor at the Sydney Review of Books, and her debut essay collection Root and Branch is forthcoming with New South Publishing in May 2022.


Gloria Demillo (they/them) is a poet, researcher and multidisciplinary creative. Their most notable contributions include the Harana Poetry Tour for the Art Gallery of New South Wales; published works with the Australian Poetry Journal, Peril Magazine, Cordite Poetry Review, Red Room Poetry; and performances at the Biennale of Sydney, the National Young Writers Festival, Sydney International Women’s Poetry and Arts Festival, Wollongong Writers Festival, Australian Poetry Slam, and the Bankstown Poetry Slam Olympics. Gloria made their acting debut in Let Me Know When You Get Home by Miranda Aguilar (2021) produced by National Theatre of Parramatta and CuriousWorks.


Jeremy Santos is a Sydney based choreographer, movement artist and spoken word poet creating and performing from his perspective as a queer Asian millennial living with HIV. The meeting point of his two passions Dance and Poetry allows for a unique performance style in both his movement and spoken word. 2020 saw his Spoken Word Poem ‘Back Burning’ performed at a benefit in San Diego, California to raise funds for the Bushfire crisis. He also danced for Sam Smith and JamarzOnMarz at Mardi Gras 2020 After Party and Fair Day.
