Imagining a trans–inclusive Stonewall

“The meeting actually went pretty well, didn’t it?”

I heard a number of variations upon this statement echo around the pub we gathered in on Saturday evening, as some 40-odd trans activists digested the day’s work. There was an undertone of incredulity: most of us had managed our expectations carefully in advance of the day. This was due in part to the fractious nature of trans communities, but also stemmed from our difficult history with Stonewall.

Back in 2008, many of us had been present at a loud, colourful demonstration outside the Victoria and Albert Museum as it hosted the annual Stonewall awards. We were there to express our displeasure at an organisation that didn’t simply exclude trans people, but seemed to keep making mistakes that caused harm to us.

A lot can happen in six years. Change has come from two directions: from continued external pressure from trans people, but also from a genuine willingness to reconsider matters from Stonewall following a shift in management in February.

DJ setlist: Bifröst Rock Disco @ Nine Worlds, London (9/8/14)

At the weekend I returned to Nine Worlds Geekfest, to provide music for the dancing a second year running.

Nine Worlds felt bigger, better and somehow more confident this year. Bifröst Queer Cabaret was a perfect example of this: the live performances were in a bigger room (which was still absolutely rammed) with a massive stage and proper lighting rig. The acts all seemed to feed off the energy of the space, with performances that were by turns funny, reflective, sexy and/or plain fun.

My own set started a little later than planned. It was a bit odd to be in a different room, but was certainly more practical for the sake of setup, and everyone seemed to find their way over without any problem as it rapidly filled up during the first couple of songs. Top props to the fellow cosplaying Thor for declaring the disco open in the wake of "Thunderstruck", and thanks to all who turned up to sing and dance the night away

I played:

Hedwig & and the Angry Inch - Tear Me Down
AC/DC – Thunderstruck
Blondie – Call Me
Kate Bush – Hounds of Love
Florence + the Machine – Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)
Regina Spektor – You’ve Got Time
Rocky Horror Picture Show OST – Sweet Transvestite
Against Me! – Transgender Dysphoria Blues
We Are A Communist – Zombie Compromise
Placebo - Every You Every Me
The Cure – Love Cats (r)
Metallica – Enter Sandman (r)
Joan Jett – I Love Rock N’ Roll
The Eagles – Journey of the Sorcerer
Sonny Rhodes – Ballad of Serenity
Greg Edmonson - River’s Dance
Turisas - Rasputin
Alestorm – Keelhauled
The Hold Steady – The Bear and the Maiden Fair
Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra – Game of Thrones Theme
Madness – One Step Beyond
Tegan & Sara feat. The Lonely Island – Everything Is AWESOME!!!
