About Me


My name is Oliver, pronouns he/him. I am a trans guy born and bred in Göteborg. Please ignore my previous name and pronouns if you read through my references :) I obviously only host queer friendly people and always prioritize people who are LGBTQIA+ themselves!

If you want to know more about that, check out my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/queersoftheworld

I love working on short-term contracts, so I change jobs more often than I have time to change my couchsurfing-profile, but they will usually be within the fields of event, theatre and tourism. I also travel for a couple of months per year, often volunteering with horses through Workaway.

When I'm not working I spend a lot of time making videos, watching movies, reading, hanging out with friends, singing.

Some things to know about me:
I'm a vegan, I don't drink alcohol, I like going to bed before midnight 🙃

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We need more respect, trust and understanding in this world and I think couchsurfing is a great way of getting one step closer to that.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies. I watch a couple of hundred films per year and try my best so that at least half of them are directed by women.

I mostly read queer autobiographies.

I mainly listen to musical theatre: Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, Falsettos, Come From Away, Kristina från Duvemåla, Merrily We Roll Along, Be more chill, In the Heights, Little Women, Waitress and many more!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every day is an amazing gift, ready to be explored.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories and thoughts from the road. Also, I might get an urge to cook or bake something swedish and/or sing a song or two!
