Mykki Blanco is making a mark in rap music on her Stunt Queer Tour. She is a voice for the LGBTQ community, gender fluidity, and HIV. Her presence is unapologetically radical. She breaks all the rules–she calls the community out, she climbs on rails, she dances on the bar, she moshes with the audience– during her performance.
Mykki isn’t defined through the narrow confines of society. She defines herself. And she inspires us to do the same. Mikki’s lyrics flow from angry confrontational moments to dark introspective moments, reflecting the way our brains process strife. Her struggle is so evident through her artistry. She mentioned to the crowd that she’d had some of the lowest lows, but to see her channeling that energy to protest injustice is remarkable.
We love Mykki and can’t wait to witness her presence again on the Protest Stage at Moogfest! Below are some remaining tour dates and some pictures from both the Raleigh and Baltimore shows. Raleigh pictures taken by Jules. Baltimore pictures taken by Missy.
