The event organizers at Queer Pressure strive to bolster LGBTQ nightlife in Madison, throwing a number of events intended for LGBTQ-identifying people and (in the case of this event) straight allies. The group has been very active this past summer, with highlight events including their Hot Summer Gays series, which featured Milwaukee rapper Zed Kenzo in one installment, as well as taking part in the opening festivities for artist Rashaad Newsome's exhibition at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. We recently talked with organizer and DJ Sarah Akawa about the mission and intentions of Queer Pressure, as well as her direction as a DJ. Akawa spins here along with DJ Boyfrrriend, DJ Sola, and Hitachimoji (the DJ alias of Madison-based musician Sylvia Johnson, who also performs and records under the name Midas Bison). Attendees are advised to hold a musically open mind and are reminded that this event is an accessible, inclusive, safe space to enjoy weird music. —Emili Earhart
