past racism/future rights is a multimedia drag show about racism in Australia. The show has been developed by Yagan Satour- a young, Indigenous, gay, Drag Queen with an intellectual disability.
This drag, multimedia spectacular is Yagan’s brain child and his first developed show. It tells of his experiences living in Australia as a gay Aboriginal man with a disability, the racism he’s seen and the discrimination he’s faced. Helping Yagan to share these stories are a bunch of his friends, Indigenous mob from his community who bring their narratives to the show.
past racism/future rights premiered to a sold out crowd at the 2015 Wominjeka Festival at the Footscray Community Arts Centre. Numerous rave reviews and a standing ovation has lead to requests from Melbourne for encore performances as well as interest in Darwin and Alice Springs from multiple festivals and venues.
past racism/future rights is Yagan’s message to the world to respect one another and to love yourself and be loved no matter who you are.
Performers: Yagan Satour, Genevieve Grieves and Lisa Pellegrino
