About our guests:

Marco Dreijer is an Amsterdam-based arts and culture influencer and intersectional body positivity activist who focuses on the queer male identifying body experience. He vlogs about the newest exhibitions, writes reviews about new theater shows and movies, and highlights new and upcoming artists and creators. His mission is to make art and culture as a whole less elitist and more accessible to a larger and more inclusive audience so that more young people and a more bicultural audience can appreciate theaters and/or museums.

As a body positivity activist, he tries to combat fatphobia in the queer community, and, with the #DatMeenJeNiet (You got to be kidding me) project, he fights discrimination and racism on online platforms. Next to that, he also is the producer and host of two podcasts; one about Eurovision Song contest (and soon about the American song contest) - Ding-a-Dong podcast and the other one about Rupaul’s Drag Race - Pruikentijd (Wigtime).

Maxim Ibadov is a Brooklyn-born and based multimedia artist and fashionista, who does Education at Park Avenue Armory, as well as freelance PR and Theatre work. Maxim, who grew up in a politically turmoiled Russia, turned their passion for social justice into a political/pop-culture podcast Let’s Tawk!, where they and a different guest each week dissect prominent current events.
