Mardi Gras is a State of Mind

A homosexual reflection on an effort to release ourselves from misshapen containers.

2019 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition

2020 / Mara Lazer / Radio (R)ejects, USA

A homosexual reflection on an effort to release ourselves from misshapen containers.

This story is about the ritual drug-induced shape shifting of Mardi Gras, and an attempt to shift via testosterone with a friend. What does it mean to be a lesbian separatist who might also be a man?

Mardi Gras is a State of Mind was produced by Mara Lazer, with editors and catalysts Ari Mejia, NK, and Phoebe Unter.
