Presented by

Esperanza Montero (ES): I am a 41 year old Spanish singer and LGBTQ activist that have a boring real life in sales in startups. I’ve written larps with social content in the context of “larptivism” about abusive relations, LGBT-phobia, feminism, HIV or different love models. I’ve designed and coordinated international larps as Conscience, Blue Flame, Silver Lining, Red Center and No Middle Ground.
