WE ARE SUPER HONOURED THAT Le Salon Queertronique IS PART OF OUR COMMUNITY. THEY WILL BE JOINING US WITH SOME OF THEIR FAVOURITE DJ SETS, IMPORTANT DATES AND PLACES.
is collectively run diy radio station – aiming to defy loneliness in the politically and socially obscure times of covid-19. at the moment, most of us are facing strict restrictions imposed by the respective state we happened to be living in. most of the cities we live, are full of cops and army, controlling our bodies, ruling our everyday moves and limiting our existence on the street. at the same time, friends/comrades/flatmates/relatives belong to one of the so-called high risk group and out of empathy, we also self regulate ourselves.
desired or not, most of us rely on the internet as a companion on their everyday – experiencing this enforced distance from close people and the massive flow of information. the situation is even darker for those of us, who face mental disorders on their everyday.
our idea is to redefine a classic mass communication/information medium, such as the radio, which has demonstrated a big history in being used in the political scene as a counter-information platform, covering important social and political issues. we wanna bring it to our standards, keep it political and provide this small pinch of companionship to friends or people who have tuned in. participation is absolutely easy and free to everybody – we aim to build an emotionally and mentally supportive community.
we also want to mention time as an important factor in our project; we wanna hear voices and emotions, listen to music, slow down and do not indulge in the fast pace that’s enforced. we want to gain our time back and then waste it- but as we like.
last but not least, we feel like mentioning that we wanna oppose to every hierarchy, authority and power structure
as also to any EXPRESSIONS OF PATRIARCHY, racism, nationalism, homo/transphobia, ableism, antisemitism, islamophobia and we indispensably require the people who broadcast on our radio to do as well.
