Lavender Lenses

Scheduled on

Wednesday 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Host: Nicola

Description: Lavender Lenses will be a music show, highlighting queer artists (in the bell hooks definition of queerness*). I want to platform music by artists who are at odds with, inventing, and creating within and outside of systems, spaces, and selves. I am curious to showcase the range of feeling that comes from loving, living, and dreaming, towards sincere collective futures that hold space for everyone’s thriving.

I will have shows that include interviews with queer community, artists, and creators, exploring with them their process, creativity, and the way it impacts their lives and others. I am keen to build reciprocal relationships, to highlight their dreams and intentions in creating, and share their work and reflections with a broad audience.

I believe the audience for this program is any listener curious to explore queerness through all its presentations and expressions. I hope to capture the variety and presence of queerness, carrying a through-line of queer as an action - a way of being, a way of seeing. I’m keen to platform queer creators, producing more media sharing perspectives through queer lenses - lavender lenses.

I believe this program is important in bringing honest, beautiful, open, and curious representation and inspiration through the platforming of queer community. I hope for it to be a feeling, dreamy, warm, exploratory and uplifting program.

*“‘Queer' not as being about who you're having sex with (that can be a dimension of it); but 'queer' as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and that has to invent and create and find a place to speak and to thrive and to live.”
