Petter Wallenberg said: “Queer clubs used to be safe spaces where we could be free. The Orlando shooting changed that. Now when we go out we find ourselves prepared for the worst. But its important to not let fear win. As our song says, we need to keep on dancing, loving and fighting. This is our tribute to the Orlando victims but also a manifest for everyone’s right to be free.”
Jwl B said: “I’m from Florida and I lost friends and family from the gay community in the Orlando massacre. I felt I had to do something positive to bring happiness and create a fund raiser. I say to all my angels that lost their lives that we’re gonna keep on dancing until were free.”
Lady Bunny said: “The gay community has remained strong in the face of discrimination, bashing and AIDS. While the shooting at Pulse was grim, it renewed our desire to bond together and fight. A big part of our spirit comes from a club culture in which we gather to dance and celebrate the freedoms we do have. That will never die!”
About House of Wallenberg:
House of Wallenberg is the music project from Swedish artist Petter Wallenberg. His recently released album, ‘My House is Your House’ was recorded as a challenge to today’s testosterone-fuled and white-washed stadium EDM, taking house music back to its original sound: queer, black and vocal-driven. ‘My House Is Your House’ was both a personal art project and advocacy. The album's first single ‘Love Yourself Test Yourself’ became the theme song for an international award-winning campaign which called for HIV awareness.
