                How does your community influence your creative process?

it influences me big time. I think I can’t and don’t want to live anymore anywhere where I’m not surrounded by other cute queer people. as I just moved to vienna few months before lockdown it wasn’t possible to really dive into the queer community that much so unfortunately it wasn’t possible to create a strong network of care which is really important to me. regarding my creative process I value the criticality, knowledge and exchange within the community the most.

A juicy slice of advice?

you should never apologize for setting your boundaries. get to know yourself, know what you want and what is good for you and communicate it in an honest way.
