You are who you choose to be

Melody Sproates 

Melody is sick and tired of been ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’, so they’ve made a lip sync to explain that… They’re neither. Whether it be your hairstyle, clothes or even just the way you talk, we are often judged or put into one single category of ‘boy’ or ‘girl’. Melody has utilised moments from their own life and recreated them through sound clips from Eminem, transgender activists, Terrorcore, Piers Morgan, The Police and many more. This performance on self discovery and acceptance reaches out to an audience and tells them that it is okay to be whoever you are, as long as that they are their true, authentic and happy self.

Melody is a writer, musician, artist and performer. They create work that challenges, educates and humours an audience. As a genderfluid person, they feel that gender neutrality, androgyny and non-binary is massively underrepresented in the current arts, and they would like to improve any negative media representations of people who identify outside of the gender binary; by opening up conversations and having more trans voices heard.
