Interview: FELGBT

We talk with Verena, the creator of Transnational Queer Underground

“#TheGalleryProject is a transnational repository of queer art open to everyone. Collages, comics, paintings, photographs, performances and installations –among other formats– participate in such an open project that seeks to question Western ethnocentrism within the arts. #TheGalleryProject is part of TQU –Transnational Queer Underground–, whose main aim is to rewrite the narrations of history dominated by white men. We interview TQU’s creator, Verena.

First of all, I read that you were doing research on queer music when you came up with the idea for the Transnational Queer Underground. Besides Johnston’s IPU, what where your influences and aims when starting this project?
One story that influenced me was how Toronto-based zine J.D.s came together. Bruce LaBruce (now mostly known for his films) and G.B. Jones (an artist, filmmaker and musician) were frustrated with being the only queers in a male dominated punk scene as well as being the only punks in a very mainstream oriented gay scene in the 1990s. They started a zine called J.D.s which included a mixtape of music called queercore, sent it to a bunch of people around the world, and soon enough everybody thought queercore was actually a thing and queer punk scenes began to emerge all around Northern America and Europe. Hearing that encouraged me to never dream too small and made me realize that it’s up to me (and you) to make the change that we want to see in the world.”

OUR WORLD NEEDS CHANGE.
Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the Generous Life Membership Programme as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.
