Avtomat - The DJ Fighting for LGBTQ+ Rights in Poland

In the last few years, as right wing ideologies have spread and politicians have become increasingly homophobic, the treatment of LGBTQ+ people in Poland has worsened, but the underground dance music community is fighting back.

In this episode, we hear from Warsaw based producer and DJ, Avtomat. He discusses his arrest, why he is determined to keep protesting and why he carries tear gas everywhere he goes. He also tells us about the map he created with Oramics to promote Polish queer/femme DJ’s and producers and how he sampled a homophobic politician in his track ‘Ignorance, Ha’.
