105: Anil Sebastian – Joy is an act of resistance: how to reclaim your identity and find your voice

Michael is joined by Anil Sebastian, the artist, musician and creative director of specialist sonic branding agency DLMDD. As co-founder of the world-leading alternative choir London Contemporary Voices, Anil has fostered a creative, safe space for transgender and gender non-conforming singers to use their voices and spread the joy of music. And it is the act of spreading joy that drives Anil in their work and life, inspired by their own quote: “Joy is an act of resistance.” From resisting the “imposter syndrome” they say they live with each day, to the challenges that come with their own identity as mixed race, queer and non-binary, Anil has turned all of life’s barriers into a joyous and completely unique body of work, which seems them recognised as one of the most exciting artists in the UK today.
