Who are you/ what’s your project?
I’m Tafkanik, the promoter and DJ behind HOMOSTASH.
What’s your gender identity?
What’s your art?
Making music. I don’t only DJ but also am a singer-songwriter.
How does your queerness influence your art ( if it does)?
Homostash is an event that is a celebration of queer culture and gender expression. We look to play with gender stereotypes using moustaches as a device to explore the boundaries between masculinity and femininity.
How has lockdown/ quarantine influenced your artistic creation?
It’s been really difficult, but we have organised a lot of online parties that raise funds for queer communities across the world. For example, the upcoming party we are raising funds for Poland’s campaign against Homophobia.
How would you describe what your art is about or what the purpose of it is ( if there is a particular one)?
My art looks to celebrate the queer community and provide a fun party were people are allowed to be who they want to be without discrimination.
When is your next event ?
