Interview with Magentanide

Magenta (she/her) is a pansexual, homoromantic transgender music producer. I asked her about herself and her content, as well as content she’s been enjoying recently. You can check out Magenta at the link at the end of the interview.

  1. What queer terminology do you use for yourself publicly, offline and / or online? Do not feel pressured to come out as anything in your answer. Please only disclose whatever you’re comfortable with.
    • transgender woman.
    • pansexual.
    • homoromantic.
  2. What non-queer demographic terminology do you use for yourself? (nationality, wealth, ethnicity, race, disability / ability, neurotype, age, education, occupation, for example). Again, please only disclose whatever you’re comfortable with.
    • white European.
    • middle class.
    • physically abled but a rainbow of neurodivergencies including:
      • autism.
      • adhd.
      • slow processing.
      • and whatever it is that makes fine and gross motor skills impaired somewhat (DCD/Dyspraxia) in the UK.
    • young adult.
    • currently studying.
  3. What content do you produce?
    • Music! I am an amateur producer, creating experimental electronic music often designed for hypothetical media, and hoping to get good enough for music to appear in real media like games and apps.
  4. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not creating content?
    • Like most online people, playing video games. But that isn’t extremely often, most of my time is spent producing.
  5. What does the queer community needs to do better about understanding, accepting, and supporting?
    • Inclusion. It goes without saying, inclusion. I had to bury my identity for so long, because the trans man that taught me everything about what it meant to be transgender I later discovered to be a truscum. Everything was regimented, every box needed to be ticked, and if I hadn’t met more trans people to remove that idea, then I be wouldn’t be who I am today.
    • As someone extremely online, it’s also crushing to see the same exclusionary “debates” dredged up time and time again. Bi lesbians, kink at pride, flag controversy – all arguments constructed to just make people hate each other that are all fighting the same dang uphill battle. Marginalized people are trying to take rights away from other marginalized people, and for what??
  6. What are you excited about going forward? Can be anything from creative projects, personal or professional milestones, etc.
    • I’m about to have access to a lot more tools for creating, and that is extremely exciting prospect!
    • I also recently was paid for my most recent release on Bandcamp. Words cannot describe the feeling of knowing that there are some people who lived your art so much that they were willing to pay for it, even if they could have it free. It makes the future look extremely bright!.
  7. Are there any pets or plants in your life?
    • No, not right now unfortunately :< .
    • Plans to fix that with a friendly succulent as soon as possible!
  8. What content creators have you been enjoying recently?
    • Specific to music, queer music producer Patricia Taxxon has and always will be an enormous inspiration. She makes so many different kinds of incredible music and has played a monumental role for my passion for music on the whole.
    • Other than that? Uhh, ive been enjoying watching the Yogscast play Civilization on YouTube :p
  9. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
    • I found this form at a time that makes this question extremely tricky to answer.

Magenta can be found on twitter at her personal account and her music account, bandcamp, and youtube.
