3: She Was Extraordinary

CW. Contains mentions of suicide.

Ambitious, but still enjoying that student lifestyle. Nina Pušić combines journalistic research with parties and festivals. Her music taste is largely influenced by two things: her family and movie soundtracks. More pop than alternative, more 70’s than contemporary, but always a whole lot of fun.

On the verge of graduating in Music Management Janneke Stam isn’t even sure if she wants to continue in the music industry.

1: “I’m the Chair Queer”

Wouter Overman looks like an old school punk. A cigarette dangling from the corner of their mouth, green mohawk, leather jacket full of pins. This all obviously also shows in their music taste. What used to be an emo-phase, is now a more traditional punk attitude involving beer, squatting and a lot live-shows. However, it’s not the music that drew them into this scene. It’s the androgynous aesthetic that really appealed to this genderfluid booker.

Welcome!

Music plays a huge role in queer life. With so many memories, anecdotes and other stories that have songs attached to them, it would be a shame if no one would ever share them.
