D goes on a series of romantic (mis)adventures as they traverse Melbourne’s queer dating scene

After being uprooted from their place of comfort and being thrown into the world’s biggest crisis, D now has to face an even bigger challenge: finding themselves in the “world’s most liveable city”. Will a series of unfortunate relationships lead them to the sense of self that they’ve lost?

“Six Guys” dives into the intersectionality of multiple marginalizations in a world run by men. A hybrid of stand-up and situational comedy, D and their six guys will take you on a hilarious romp that shines a light on a uniquely queer and diverse experience of love, loss, identity, and reinvention.
