How Do We Feel About Corporate Sponsorship?

24/07/2019

Johanna Burai writes the endspiece for this month's edition of creative arts magazine Crack, which is based in Bristol and London, but publishes nationwide. Her piece is on the commodification of queerness, the fact that at Pride season, rainbow flags adorn every cafe and corporate business in her part of the capital, but that there is still homophobic abuse from heterosexual males, and sometimes females too. The launch of a trans themed listening list of tracks online, called Transcend, gets Burai in a philosophical mood about how all our lives have been transformed by the presence of corporate support of Pride. But how deep does this commitment go? That's what Johanna is left thinking. Read her piece in Crack, which is available throughout urban centres across England, Wales and Scotland. Meanwhile, if you fancy hearing a somewhat more authentic voice of trans people than the Spotify corporate playlist, then remember that the internet also brings you TransRadioUK, a national station featuring a wide range of music and chat, and which is brought to you by a stellar line up of trans and gender fluid deejays.
