In addition to Pride Month, June is also Black Music Month. Throughout the month, we'll be sharing musical artists who have made an impact in both Black and LGBTQ+ communities.

Image text: Born in Charlotte, raised in Philadelphia and a Southern Baptist Church is Ivy Sole origin story. Singing in the church is where they began to become familiar with performing and vocal training. Now much older, Ivy Sole has a newfound connection with spirituality that supports their q***rness. Ivy Sole identifies as q***r but doesn’t want it to be a “thesis” of their music, rather that it is a "detail" of their career as a whole. Ivy Sole began with spoken word poetry, and since then, their writing has continued to evolve with them. Ivy Sole's 2016 project, Eden, was a sprawling exploration of self, which followed two introspective EP’s, East and West. Their 2018 album, Overgrown, is their entire self on display, after growing, reflecting on their youth and the exploration of adulthood. When asked about how their identity as a Black q***r person plays a role in the music Ivy Sole is making, they go onto say, “...As far as q***r Black artistry, I think it’s important because there are so few people getting highlighted. As a broad umbrella, it would be Blackness, and under that umbrella, it would be q***rness. So interacting with the world as a Black q***r person necessitates a different perspective. It’s important to listen to people who have this perspective, especially if it’s rooted in their truth,” in an interview with The Gumbo, a website that showcases the multi-dimensional experience of Hip-Hop.

Some songs to listen to are: "Dream Girl," "Heavy," and "You Don't Know My Name." Check out their albums, "Eden" and "Overgrown." Check out their newest EP, "SOUTHPAW."

Image text: Some may not know Tayla Parx (yet), but many will know of her artistry. Over the past several years, the singer-songwriter has penned hits for some of your favs and some of the biggest names in the music industry: Janelle Monáe, The Internet, Ariana Grande, BTS--and many more. Tayla Parx also writes for herself. She uses her music to express her sexual fluidity and avoids using gendered pronouns in any of her music. Her sexuality has never leaned towards one gender at any point in life and she likes the idea that her songs could be about anybody. Representation is everything to Tayla Prax, and as a person who strongly cares about the voices of Black and LGBTQ+ people, she hopes that by being a Black bisexual woman making strides in the music industry, she can inspire other Black LGBTQ+ musicians.

Image text: In 2021, Kaytranada was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy, ultimately winning one for Best Dance Recording. But, Kaytranada is hardly new to music, as he has been building a career in the music industry for a decade. It began from making beats when he was young to SoundCloud remixing songs, gaining popularity from various mixes like his 2012 remix of Janet Jackson's "If" or Teedra Moses’s "Be Your Girl." In 2016, Kaytranada came out as gay. When revisiting the conversation of sexuality in another interview, Kaytranada realizes the importance of representation in music. He states, "A lot of young kids who aspire to be musicians probably have the same inner struggles as me, being Black and gay just [trying to] fit in," the DJ told Billboard. "It could be inspiring to them." He dedicates his wins to other Black and LGBTQ+ musicians

Carrie Moyer is a painter and writer living in Brooklyn, New York. She is the Director of the MFA Program in Studio Art at Hunter College. Moyer is represented by DC Moore Gallery. In 1991, Moyer co-founded one of the first le***an public art projects, D**E ACTION MACHINE! (DAM!) with photographer Sue Schaffner. Between 1991 and 2004, DAM! filled the streets of New York City with public art campaigns. A typical DAM! project was comprised of 5,000 posters wheatpasted throughout New York City over the course of a month, but the group also utilized other modes of sharing information such as buttons, stickers, and distribution of catalogs by mail. DAM! campaigns inserted le***an images into recognizable commercial contexts, revealing how America’s mainstream culture depicts le***ans and how they are not advertised to as a consumer group in our capitalism-driven society. DAM! advertisements promised le***ans what has been denied to them by the mainstream; power, inclusion, and public recognition of identity. Moyer's website is http://www.carriemoyer.com/ and the website for DAM! is http://www.dykeactionmachine.com/. #LGBTQArtistOfTheWeek

Carrie Moyer will be presenting a virtual Artist’s Now lecture at UWM on March 31st 2021.

Join Michelle Caswell for talks on community archives on March 5 and 6! March 5 | 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. UWM Libraries 4th floor conference center Urgent Archives: Communities, Representation, and the Fight Against (Symbolic) Annihilation, Michelle Caswell In the 1970s, feminist communication scholars first proposed the term “symbolic annihilation” to describe the ways in which women are absent, underrepresented, or misrepresented in mainstream media. Taking this concept as a starting point, the first part of this talk will examine the ways in which mainstream archival practice has symbolically annihilated communities of color and LGBTQ communities through absence, underrepresentation, and misrepresentation. In the face of such symbolic annihilation, marginalized communities have formed their own independent community-based archives that empower them to establish, enact, and reflect on their presence in ways that are complex, meaningful, and substantive. In the second part, this talk will examine the relationship between symbolic and actual annihilation. Symbolic annihilation both precedes and succeeds symbolic annihilation in that communities are rendered nonexistent, invisible, or expendable before they are subject to violence, and then, after violence, such acts are often rendered invisible or expunged from the record, magnifying and mimicking the violence itself. In the wake of such archival silences and misrepresentations, communities often conjure up imaginary records, that is, records that do not actually exist but are collectively imagined to fill affective voids left by existing bureaucratic and legalistic records. This talk will end with an examination of such impossible archival imaginaries and a proposition for all of us to “imagine otherwise,” that is, to conceive of and build a world in which communities that have historically been and are currently being oppressed are fully empowered to represent their past, construct their present, and envision their futures as forms of liberation.
