Queertronica Podcast

Saeleen Bouvar is the founder of the Salon Queertronique and the first Balkan trans woman of electronic music. She is known for her sets dripping with queerness, which not only tell a story full of passion and sex, but will also make some bodies sweat. As Salonnière of the Salon Queertronique, founded in May 2017, Saeleen Bouvar enriches the Hamburg club life with a good portion of TransVisibility at the Decks. Her sets impress with her knowledge from three decades of queer club culture. From this source she draws the material for the creation of her uniquely mixed compositions. Under the aspect of "Recreate-Restore-Reform" she resurrects the old sound of the gay disco and the later queer clubs and mixes it with new elements to create a new whole, always with a refined, feminine elegance between disco, Chicago and acid house, as well as electroclash and techno. After her gigs at the Fusion Festival 2019, in Athens, in Bale and at the Queer Bcademy in Kampnagel, Saeleen is setting sail to new horizons.

The Venus Of The Dancefloor

The Trans Day Of Remembrance is a day we mourn our siblings who were murdered because of the hatred towards trans people. One of the most popoular documented murder of a trans woman was Venus Xtravaganza, a young iconic Latina famous for her appearance in "Paris is Burning". She was found four days later, on Christmas day, strangled and hidden under a bed at the Duchess Hotel in New York. The murderer never got caught. The death of Venus still hurts so much, because we have a documented tape which shows the aspiring model so full of life with all of her dreams and hopes. She stands for so many young trans women who are murdered every day. This set is an homage to Venus and thus and homage to all the young girls gone too soon. As much as they want us dead, we will keep on living and dancing. This is not a mournful set, it is a set like Venus, vivid, cunt, sassy and sexy!
