Lisa Luxx has dropped a video for her debut single ‘Girl Gang’. The single was released today – International Women’s Day – you can read our review here
Lisa Luxx is an award-winning British-Syrian feminist poet, celebrated by Dazed magazine as “sensitive and revolutionary”. After putting a call-out on her social media for women to submit videos with their girl gangs she received an overwhelming response. Videos were sent in from Senegal to Canada via California and Beirut. Among the videos received was an all star cast including the likes of tattooist Grace Neutral, broadcaster and novelist Yasmin Abdel-Magied, Instagram poet Salma el Wardany, life coach and film director Alexandra Roxo, cult feminist punk band Dream Nails, presenter Poppy Jaime, sex writer Stephanie Theobald and Hollywood actress, musician and model Suki Waterhouse plus key members of the European Network of Migrant Women.
The call-out began creating an offline sense of sisterhood as women reported they were making a bigger effort to define who their girl gang was and spend time with them. Girl Gang was executively produced by a fellow queer Arab and former Buzzfeed presenter, Tania Safi
Lisa says: “During one of the Women’s March’s I blasted big tunes like Beyoncé’s Formation through a moving sound system. We’ve been through a lot, and women are working so hard on building a better world, so the least we deserve is to dance through the uprising. The oomph of energy and the joy it brought to resistance during that protest is what inspired me to write this song.”
