How do you determine success?

I think the way I determine success personally would be to be in a place where I’m working towards materialising things that I have a desire to see in the world. To be doing it in a way that is in some way mutual and has a flow of energy that I’m putting into the world and the people that I care about that is also coming back like a cycle. These things somehow uplifting things I think are important and healing to the world, also dismantling and breaking down and looking towards the end of oppressive and violent structures and dynamics. I think if I can be in a position like that I feel like I’m working towards a successful place.

Tell us about a creative queer POC the world should be paying attention to.

I think the world should be paying more attention to Ain Bailey, she is an artist and DJ whose work and warmth has really continued to inspire me.
