Stories of a queer brown muddy kid was Alabanza’s first full body of work, a DIY, self-made, messy Poetry / Mixed arts show that catapulted them onto the London Queer scene. Stories of a Queer Brown Muddy Kid talked about fetishization, queer black bodies in white spaces, gay clubs, and the white gaze. After debuting it at the 2015 stokes crofts arts festival in bristol, Alabanza brought Stories of A Queer Brown Muddy Kid to festivals such as Oxford Queer Week, Keble arts Festival, Hamburg International Festival, and spaces like the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. They later finished its run at a sold out, highly reviewed and praised showing, at Housman’s Book Store in London.
