In the interview June speaks about her creative process, the emotional narrative when making and playing music, and about her trans* identity and experience and how it relates back to her songwriting and performance.

The campaign provides support for queer young people between the ages of 14-25 by offering them a safe place to explore themselves creatively through youth-led projects that empowers SSAGD/LGBTQIA+ youth through creative media projects.

The centre provides a safe, inclusive space for TGD people to access appropriate services – general medical, sexual health and mental health – by reducing barriers to health.
