Eastside Queer Stories Festival has gone digital this year in Radio Plays format on Spotify for FREE!

"Eastside Queer Stories is a performing arts festival that showcases 1-Act plays from the LGBTQIA+ community in Los Angeles. It began as the next level of development from Eastside Queer Storytelling events in East Los Angeles in 2014 to connect the LGBTQIA+ community outside of the bar and club scene." - Q Youth Foundation

I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to be in community with my fellow LGBTQIA+ peeps and bring unique, important stories to life. It was such an honor and thank you for having me!

Check out “Afterlife or Bust” by Librecht followed by an interview with the playwright.

Logline: While riding a Metro train, two strangers discuss their unfulfilled desires.
