Interview of Violet

Violet shares her experience of being a musician and DJ in New York’s rave scene while navigating the political landscape of gentrification. Having grown up nomadically with immigrant parents, she feels connected to NYC’s trans and queer community and specific subcultures that explore identities beyond gender through play, non-human kinship, and body modification. Violet elaborates on her political ideas ranging from accelerationism, to campaign financing to civil rights for A.I.
