Kumar Muniandy


Actor and writer Kumar Muniandy questions his identity,  queerness, internalized homophobia and experiences of racism with his  play. In the midst of these terms and their politics, Kumar seeks his  own truth.

Is it possible to live as a brown gay man in Germany and find healing  while carrying the weight of oppression from his motherland? Set in a  speed-dating event, will Kumar’s leading man, Krishna, win the role he  wants in this audition for love?

Through the lens of his experience as a Tamil-Malaysian queer person  living in Berlin, Kumar Muniandy has developed a theater piece that  investigates the connections between internalized homophobia that stems  from anti-homosexuality laws of the colonial era and the structural  racism he experiences.

What are the consequences of such merciless neocolonialism for the  mental health of queer minorities living in Germany today? After all,  Krishna, like Kumar, is on a pursuit of forgiveness and self acceptance.

Second Class Queer is dedicated to Nhaveen.
