New Zine – Coming Out Autistic

I have a new 44 page colour comic book zine called Coming Out Autistic.
It is available here and more info is below-
Coming Out Autistic is a queer comic book zine that features interviews with a variety of LGBTQ+ people. Each person is autistic and this comic tells their coming out stories. The stories are not how they come out as queer, but how they come out as autistic. Parallels with common ‘coming out as gay’ stories are drawn and differences are also highlighted. The zine includes interviews, illustrations and comic book pages.

Video and Images from Out of Place Festival Paisley – May 2019

Soon after I presented Letters We Leave Behind at Dundee Rep the show was presented in a shopping centre in Paisley. This location was different and due to miscommunication from the venue the work was presented over a shorter period of time. The set up made me think about myself in the performance space and from now on I will present 100% of the time in all productions. For this show I was absent and I feel that a human who understands the work needs to be there permanently. The shopping centre was an interesting way to present the show. People looked curiously into the window, but few people engaged with the interactive element of the show.

Video and images from Rep Stripped at Dundee Rep

Back in May 2019 I took part in the Rep Stripped Festival in Dundee. The event was in the Dundee Rep Theatre and I presented Letter We Leave Behind in the workshop room.

The production made me think about the use of space and how existing locations make an impact on the way I present my work. The Rep Stripped Festival was several months ago and soon after I presented Letters We Leave Behind in Paisley. This was in a totally different location and I will present videos, images and thoughts on this later.

I think Private Plays in the future will be different. More minimal. Smaller. Intimate and alive.

Be My Friend, Please – Mini Zine

This mini-zine is a performance in a zine that looks at loneliness when you are autistic. The story tackles friendship and asking for help. The zine itself features illustrations and instructions on how and where to act out the story (but as with the other performances in the mini-zine series, you can do it wherever you please).

Be My Friend, Please is available at – https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/532370792/be-my-friend-please?ref=shop_home_active_16
