Pride partying without the Queen wouldn’t be right. Yes our Josephine is responsible for way too many regals smiles over Brighton Pride so it seemed only majestically fitting that we grab a Queenie Quickie before she provides us with the perfect DSD Party soundtrack this weekend. She is the DSD Queen after all.
Style of music played? House – Deep, dark, light, fluffy, classic, unknown and the odd bit of filth!
Anything special planned for your DSD Pride set this year? I’m playing right across the DSD time zones with some early and some late slots so I’m planning an assortment of all of the above. Plus a dazzling array of new Tshirts and a thoroughly sturdy bra (can you hear me Mister Barker???)
Why is LGBTQ Pride important to you? I’ve been knocking about a long time and remember marching along Western Road in 1991 and, clichéd as it is, I’m really proud of how far we’ve come! We should be bloody proud of who we are. But we mustn’t forget that we are the fortunate ones, simply because of where we live. Brighton Pride is – and should be – a great big fabulous party. Yet we must also never forget our brothers and sisters for whom every day is a struggle to be who they actually are. As Pride will also be highlighting the 82 countries where being gay is not ‘acceptable’, we will be able to show our support for those less fortunate than ourselves. So yep – Pride is important to me for both political and party hard reasons……bring it on!!!!
Why do you love DSD at Pride so? I love DSD full stop, but over Pride my love goes even further as we have three sessions of gorgeousness to look forward to and the DSD crowd are the best!!! Can’t say which I’m looking forward to most as I’m ridiculously excited about all of them though I reckon Saturday night is going to be HUGE.
Ultimate Pride tune? Must play (for my lovely AJ) Dr Kucho Lies To Yourself as the bass line really has Pride party stamped all over it. Plus a favourite from this season that’s been rocking the dancefloor Acid Games by Luke Solomon.
Dirty or Disco at Pride? Depends on the time really as dirty usually comes later…..though there’s nothing like sticking a camp and fabulous disco classic on to round things up at silly o’ clock in the morning!
Sunset or sunrise at Pride? Sorry to sit on the fence but I intend to be enjoying both….xxx
