Radam Ridwan on deconstructing imaginary life milestones

This week on Growing up with gal-dem we’re joined by queer non-binary multi-disciplinary artist Radam Ridwan. Radam talks about how they created an authentic space on social media and the importance of setting boundaries online. We discussed how having safe queer spaces for people of colour are vital, and how the lack of them affected Radam while growing up. 


Radam’s extract, written a few weeks after their 21st birthday, is a poetic narrative in which Radam looks forward on the time they have and what you ‘should’ be achieving by each age milestone. They reflect on deconstructing these timelines and pressures in order to recognise the space you have now.
