Transtronica / Saeleen Bouvar
Le Salon Queertronique
Chapitre 7: Technomouna
The increasing trans* visibility in digital media provides access to knowledge that was previously only available from trans* females on the street. The dominant language on the web is English. This is increasingly spreading an Anglophone culture within a new middle and upper class group of trans* people. As a result, local but also non-Anglophone trans* icons of the street are being forgotten. "Mouna" is the Greek word for the term "cunt" of the ballroom scene. It is a distinction for a particularly attractive femininity. Technomouna Lisa is therefore the figurehead of our seventh edition of Salon Queertronique. She represents eternal femininity in edgy trans* cuntness, a new Sheroe whose soundtrack is a techno full of surprises.
The evening will be hosted by our salonnière Saeleen Bouvar with Khloe, Venezuelan resident DJ of the Rawmantique collective and housewife B. Poderosa, who already brought the dance floor to the boil at the last salon.
SALON QUEERTRONIQUE is Hamburg's party series for celebrated transvisibility – a platform for DJs far removed from gender conformity. The owner of the salon is Saeleen Bouvar herself, a cross between "Céline" or "Selene", goddess of the moon, and Emma Bovary, Gustave Flaubert's character who caused the biggest scandal in literary history. As Saeleen, lady of the court and first DJ of the evening, she invites another artist as a guest behind the decks.
