“It’s really cool to be a lesbian!”
DJ Fride | Club Owner | Oslo, Norway
Hey lovely lesbian lady! Tell us about yourself
I am Dj Fride, I have been a Dj since 2001 and have played at multiple Prides and lesbian venues in Scandinavia. I own a lesbian bar in Oslo, SO, together with my sidekick and business partner, Vichy Ericsson. We also own a lesbian club concept, Club aweSOme, that we currently tour in Norway and Sweden. Our goal is visibility, high end parties and networking and to let everyone know that it’s really cool to be a lesbian. We just love it!
The Ella Festival reflects the work we are trying to do in Scandinavia, but on a broader scale. I think it’s immensely important to front that work. It’s our first time at the festival, but I don’t think it’s our last. I can’t wait to come down and see everyone have fun, play some music and make new friends.
