“Lean Into My Transness” (with Simona Castricum‪)‬ Lost Spaces

    • Society & Culture

Simona Castricum is a musician, DJ and producer based in Melbourne, Australia.

We caught up to talk about Hugs and Kisses, a night that ran in the 2010s and took advantage of the looser licensing laws that applied to the venue it was based in, which created this wonderful, hedonistic atmosphere reminiscent of the early rave scene. 

We talked a lot about being safe on the scene and how to create that culture, becoming yourself, and drinking in the street. 

Oh, and I need to let you know that Simona is probably THE most Australian person that I've ever spoken to, and uses a whole heap of colloquial language, so you may want to familiarise yourself with the terms cooked, hoon, sick, goon and pingers before you listen to the episode! But, then again, it's kind of fun guessing as you go along so I'll leave that decision up to you. 

Do you have any memories of Hugs and Kisses, or from your own queer scene that you want to share? Well, if you have please get in touch - I want to create the biggest online record of people's memories and stories - go to www.lostspacespodcast.com and find the section 'Share a Lost Space' and tell me what you got up to! Bonus points for embarrassing photos!

You can also find me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/lostspacespod), Instagram (www.instagram.com/lostspacespod) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/lostspacespod)
