"A collective is what does not stand still but creates and is created by movement"
FIRST MAURITIAN EVENT | FEATURED ON PICCADILLY LIGHTS
"I wanted to lay the foundations of a community that celebrated the niche intersectionality that is being British-Mauritian and Queer (especially in the music and nightlife industries). This journey has included throwing intimate community club nights in Brighton that gathered members of the PoC and queer community to form a space where we can enjoy global sounds spanning various African, South Asian, Islander and Latino genres and not restricted to ‘queer pop music’. Our journey has also included being featured on Piccadilly Lights during London Pride and our biggest achievement to date would be hosting the first Mauritian float to ever appear on a Pride parade worldwide (not including Mauritius itself). We have worked with prominent UK artists from across the UK such as DJ Priya, DJ Kizzi, Nelson Navarro, Dandi-Lion, Imaniii and many more. I am excited to see how Pink Islands evolves from our journey so far and how, as a community, we can grow and create an archive of creative work through various mediums for the future generations."
