When we spoke to Jesse last year, he discussed the importance of queer perspectives in music.
“We are consumers of music and pop culture, and for myself, I’ve always not felt represented in the media,” he told us. “I’ve always looked at things that were like, gay entertainment, and I was like, ‘That’s not really me, that’s not my gay experience’.
“Once there’s more queer filmmakers, songwriters and musicians, the more likely they are to reach an audience of queer, LGBTQ people and marginalised groups that they can identify with.”
