The LGBTQ community is a community which I have been constantly inspired by from a young age. There weren’t very many out kids at the school I went to. I was familiar with LGBTQ culture but hadn’t really immersed myself in it before the age of 15. Just before I turned 16, I began putting my music online and began to get invited to perform at warehouse parties in London. I lived an hour and a half away, in Hertfordshire, and had never really gone to London for anything like this before. As soon as I arrived I was basically in another world. My eyes were opened up to so many new things and experiences and cultures -- many of which were linked, influenced or led by the LGBTQ community. I was introduced to club kid fashion, drag queens, gay clubs, inspirational members of the LGBTQ community, the idea that being totally yourself was cool, the idea of mass acceptance and embracing exactly who you are... I felt very special and honored to be experiencing what I was experiencing. Everything was so fun and exciting to me. And everything was extremely inspiring and influential.
