LISTEN QUEER!

It’s here! It’s queer! Get used to it!

I’m so pleased to announce the launch of my music column: Listen Queer. It’s published through The Indie Machine; a Toronto-based multimedia music series that plays a discernible role in supporting local music.

The queer community exists on foundations of love, camaraderie and genuine support. As a queer musician, I crave to translate those conventions into my exploration of music. However, as I search to discover new queer music; I find myself dissatisfied. Every LGBTQ ¬†publication has their designated “Music” section, but it’s often solely dedicated to Elton, Ani, and the Indigo Girls. It’s 2013! Where’s the new blood!?

Listen Queer is about providing a resource to discover queer-centric music and events. Through artist interviews, event coverage and ongoing news updates – readers get an inside scoop on the queer music happenings in Toronto and around the world.

Check back to theindiemachine.com for bi-weekly postings, and follow @listenqueer on Twitter for all the latest. If you have any suggestions on music/events I should cover, please email listenqueer@gmail.com.

Keep it queer my homomies,
– Julia
