Music plays a huge role in queer life. With so many memories, anecdotes and other stories that have songs attached to them, it would be a shame if no one would ever share them.

    If you want to go out and become an expert in salsa dancing, you will most likely be confronted with a fait amount of painful heteronormativity. Danyèla decided to not march in time to this tired beat. Instead she stubbornly kept correcting her dance teachers, and thus changed the language around salsa. From men and women to leaders and followers.

    For the first time since the beginning of the show someone from France has found her way on the podcast. Something I’ve been trying to get done for four years. What’s more this episode: the importance of t.v. and a sudden realization.

    Nazi-Punks Fuck Off!

    Nazi-Punks Fuck Off!

    Suky is a booker and promotor for Queer As Punk, a queer music night in Edinburgh. Their political compass in booking gigs leads the way through a messy musical landscape. When bands and artists do the same, their paths might cross with a fun, safe concert for all parties involved. You can fuck off if you’re a racist, bigot, transphobe or just being a dick at shows.

    What’s more this episode: cringey, unnecessary t.v. shows, a throwback to the very first QS episode and support from an unexpected corner of the UK.

    Drastic Shifts

    Drastic Shifts

    The war in Ukraine has been going on for more than half a year, so people tend to forget about this issue and focus on their regular daily lives. Not Amy. They’ve been sharing resources, helping refugees and showed support to a point where it became a full time job. How did they take the shift from more general queer activism to a specific Ukranian Refugee flow? They’ll explain in this episode.

    Of course we happen to talk about Eurovison too. It kinda becomes a yearly tradition to bring up the Song Contest in September. American, Asian and African listeners, share your thoughts on the matter!

    Content warning: queerphobia, war, racism.

    Sisters in Solidarity

    Sisters in Solidarity

    This podcast episode deals with some dark subjects, albeit not all too explicit. Since the Taliban took over Kabul, roughly a year ago, the lives of plenty of women and girls drastically changed. The Young Afghan Women Movement offers support and solidarity for these women. Hameeda is part of this movement. In this podcast she explains what motivates her and how she deals with the big questions that come with dealing with political conflict.

    More this episode: Hameeda’s unique view on gender. Sometimes gender is a physical journey, sometimes it’s a spiritual one. She shows how the weird intersection between gender, music and religion can be in beautiful harmony.

    The Timing of Change

    The Timing of Change

    It’s no secret that your location can hugely impact your mood, mental state and creative inspiration. However, the timing of when you change your environment is often overlooked in this. Singer and songwriter Eric Terino will tell you all about it. He moved from a quiet New England area to New York City and then back to the New England woods. This all had it’s effect on his music.

    What’s more this episode: How to recreate the typical Van Gogh paint style, dealing with loss, and how different vocal takes can make a huge impact on your art. No matter how arbitrarily different they might be.

    Things Take Time

    Things Take Time

    Something I’d Like to call the Harrison Ford effect is when people start a new career later in life. JD Danner used to work as an accountant but left Corporate America in order to pursue music. Now she has a professional career as an artist and she’s making quite a name for herself. Just like Ford, Danner proves that sometimes things take time.

    Danner started her career in the 90’s, when Alanis Morissette, Tracy Chapman and other women making rock music were topping the charts. Her ambition to play in the same circles as these other women didn’t quite come true, but considering the transphobic brand of feminism that was common at the time that might just be a good thing. In the episode Danner reflects on how she lived through this era.
