Philipp Leinenbach is a trained actor and comedian who has worked on stage and in front of the camera for more than fourteen years. He is based in Berlin, but his work has taken him all over the country and to other European cities. In 2021 he, amongst 184 fellow queer acting colleagues, signed the #actout manifesto, a policy statement and publication that takes a stand for visibility, more acceptance, and recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and non-binary people in society and within the German-speaking film, TV, and theater industries.
Philipp is part of the Queer Media Society and was listed as a “Prout Performer in Media, Art, and Culture” by the “Prout at Work” organization twice already – an honoring of media representatives that are openly queer and contributing to the community with their work. He runs LGBTQties Comedy Berlin, producing comedy shows that offer safer spaces for queer people and friends. Philipp also is an ambassador for Kinderschutzengel e.V. (guardian angels for children), with whom he visits seriously and chronically ill children in hospitals, organizes get-togethers, and hosts a yearly party for the kids.
