TAYLOR ALXNDR (they/she) is a DIY pop musician and "underground drag icon" based in ATL, GA. She is a self-taught producer, songwriter, creative director, and figurehead of the burgeoning queer art and drag scene in Atlanta. Mixing social commentary with dancefloor ready rhythms, ALXNDR's sound has permeated her local DIY scene and landed her opening spots for the likes of King Princess and Junglepussy. She's the co-founder and executive director of Southern Fried Queer Pride, a queer and trans arts and advocacy organization led by Black and brown folks to uplift Southern queer art and culture. ALXNDR self-released her debut album HOLOGRAM in November of 2018. Chad Radford of Creative Loafing Atlanta says, "The album radiates with bright synth-pop flourishes built around lyrical themes of perception, the role that technology plays in (mis)communication, and the importance of rising above societal dissonance."
