Meet Kaylee (she/her)
Tell us about yourself Kaylee!
I’m Kaylee Golding also known as your favourite Gyal From Brum. I am an award winning DJ & Radio Presenter. I currently present a national daytime show weekdays 1pm-4pm on BBC Radio 1XTRA. This is where I get to champion black music and culture. From celebrating black pride, to sharing stories from the Windrush generation. As well as doing my radio show I run a platform called ‘On Your Gaydar’. We have a podcast sharing the voices of LGBTQ+ people of colour, about the content that matters to us. We also run events like brunches, or club nights where LGBTQ+ people that love black music can come and freely express themselves, but also make friends and create community of people around them!
