Adrian Gaston Garcia

Adrian Gaston Garcia (aka AGG) is a queer Latine storyteller whose mission is to share narratives that build community.

Adrian fuels his creativity via the performing arts, specifically theater, improv, and spoken word poetry. His work is based on his experiences and the intersectionality of his identities. It is a shout out to all the queer brown boys who choose joy as their form of resistance.

AGG completed Washington Improv Theater’s (WIT) program in 2019 and is currently a student at the Studio Acting Conservatory. A fan of sharpening his skills, AGG loves attending workshops and is exploring the dramatic side of improv.

You can also catch him performing with indie teams Out / Loud and Latinx States of America. 

Adrian hails from the Windy City and has been in the district for the past 12 years. He rides hard for Columbia Heights and always craves tacos and pizza.

Adrian’s poetry has been featured at a variety of venues and shows, including BloomBars DC, Busboys and Poets, the DC Latino Book Festival, Homo Stanzas, The Nail Salon, World Poetry Day, and Our Space Experience.

Adrian was a featured artist at the 2023 District of Pride showcase hosted by the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs. He was also one of the featured storytellers for Story District’s 2023 LGBTQ+ Pride special: Out/Spoken, a celebration highlighting queer voices and stories.

In 2022, Adrian co-produce Joteria: Our Untold Stories… which premiered as a sold out show at the Atlas Center for Performing Arts 2022 INTERSECTIONS Festival and also had six runs at the 2022 Minnesota Fringe Festival.

Adrian is the co-host and producer of Los Bookis Podcast, a podcast for queer Latine bookworms who love queer Latine stories. He is a graduate from the Spanish Sin Pena 2023 Academy and was a Summer 2023 Resident of the DC Mayor’s 202Creates Initiative.
