Why You Need To Watch Channel 4's Radical New Music Show

"“I realised very early on that visibility is important because people need to see positive representations of themselves in the world.” This is a sentiment echoed by Coochie, a member of Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP), an Atlanta-based queer and trans arts and advocacy organisation that celebrates the vibrant communities of the Southern states.""

Ready to make ‘Noise:’ Atlanta’s Taylor Alxndr on debut EP, Southern Fried Queer Pride

Atlanta is known for a lot of things in Southern queer culture, including producing some of the nation’s finest drag queens, vocalists and activists. Griffin native Taylor Alxndr does them all with the intelligence and panache that one would expect from someone born and raised in the South.

INTERVIEW: THE SELF-MADE ARTISTIC EXCELLENCE OF TAYLOR ALXNDR

During our conversation over warm tea and cookies, I got the feeling that becoming an underground queer icon, one that exists somewhere between drag artist and Atlanta socialite, seems to be a master plan that Taylor Alxndr was destined for. We sat down to discuss their upcoming EP, NOISE, as well as life, activism, and other queer things. They spoke about their music, art, and activism with a passion that is matched by an ease; one that says “I have this in the bag, now get out of my way.”

PREMIERE: TAYLOR ALXNDR – “NIGHTWORK”

...while the song evokes the glamor and glitz of a nightlife foreign to most, the underlying sentiment — of questioning one’s worth, as both an artist and performer — should ring true to almost anyone who entertains the public.
