Sanni Est's favourite queer places in queer Berlin

In terms of variety and diversity, for the Brazilian artist, curator, musician and activist, Sanni Est, it's the wide range of possibilities that makes Berlin so vibrant and exciting. For our campaign, Sanni offers us an insight into her life in Berlin as a trans* woman of colour; she shares with us what drives her and which places inspire and have had an impact on her. Starting with the Schwules (Gay) Museum, as a queer exhibition space, and Haus der Kulturen der Welt ( Museum of World Cultures) with high quality, diverse programming, we follow Sanni to Teufelssee (Devil's Lake) for a refreshing cool-down. Sounds good, doesn't it? So, come along - Berlin is not only THE place to go for lots of good art from all over the world, but also a place to make friends and enjoy queer parties!
