TAYLOR ALXNDR (they/she) is a DIY multi-media artist, performance artist, drag queen, writer, community organizer, and curator based out of Atlanta, GA. TAYLOR's work and thoughts have been featured in OUT Magazine, AFROPUNK, Vice, Channel 4, Bitch Media, Creative Loafing Atlanta, The GA Voice, and more.

 

Creating content and organizing from a young age, TAYLOR moved to Atlanta from rural Griffin, GA to attend college and swiftly immersed herself into the local activism and drag scenes. Becoming a president of the Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity at Georgia State University, where they studied Art & Graphic Design, they soon delved into grassroots organizing in local queer and trans communities.

 

TAYLOR ALXNDR is a DIY synthpop singer, songwriter, and producer. They're preparing to release their debut EP, NOISE, on Futurehood. They have released several songs, including the single "Nightwork". TAYLOR writes, produces, and records all their music in their homemade studio.

In 2014, TAYLOR co-founded Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP), a queer and trans arts & advocacy organization and festival uplifting Southern queer and trans artists, activists, and communities. SFQP has since developed from a annual festival to a regional organization with monthly events, two annual festivals, and has been experienced by thousands.

ALXNDR also created, hosts, and curates SWEET TEA, a queer variety show showcasing queer and trans performance art. SWEET TEA began as a monthly event in 2013 and has grown into a quarterly showcase featuring the talents of artists like Abdu Ali and bell's roar.

TAYLOR hosts AMEN, a monthly drag show held at Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium every first Thursday.

In addition to their organizing work, TAYLOR is also an established DIY artist, creating in the areas of graphic design, photography, music production, videography, and more.
