Simona Castricum is a singer/DJ from Melbourne, and she recently released a self-video of her travels in Los Angeles, California and New York City while she was recently in the US for a tour. Simona’s ‘Nights Don’t Breathe’ is also part of Simona’s new piece for the 2016 ARHA Architecture & Feminisms Conference in Stockholm, which she will be presenting at this November.
As stated in the title, this feature is about Simona’s emotions around street harassment and how to mentally prepare for a journey at night for non-conforming folk of gender:
“Nights Don’t Breathe’ taps into my emotions around street harassment. Mentally preparing for a journey at night to and from the club for gender non-conforming folk is ever present work. Transmisogyny is a unique type of violence framed by toxic masculinity and cisnormativity we need to unpack to make safer spaces.”
