Eastside Queer Stories

ESQS_ADAVIS_0037

I had the honor of working on a special project with the talented actors and playwrights of the Eastside Queer Stories Festival. The Q Youth Foundation joined forces with Casa 0101 to provide a platform for young East LA thespians to share their stories on stage.

I was given access to document the cast & crew in two very unique themes.

With Lisa’s careful location scouting, our imagination ran wild! A deserted road served as a post apocalyptic stage for our first theme. I am so lucky to have her on my team. <3

We returned with a colorful vengeance in front of an impactful mural for round 2!

Two very special images were printed and signed for a silent auction benefiting the festival. We want to see it back next year!
