Uk Rumble Sound Clash To Be Held In Gay ClubSocial Commentary
So the waves of Ricky Trooper’s 2011 revelation that he would play for a gay crowd are finally touching the shores of the UK. The 2017 Irish and Chin UK Rumble will be held in a gay club Leicesters Lifestyle to some this is not a problem. Personally wouldn’t deem it a perfect situation for a soundclash.[sa
We have to ask if certain artists like Sizzla and Capleton will be banned on the night surely there will be homosexual people in the club alongside soundclash fans who would take offence of some of the lyrics contained in certain soundclash anthems for example Sizzla No Apology. If the gay people in the club conduct themselves in a manner that gay people do in their own environment will it cause issue to for soundclash fans for example a Rasta man in the dance who may be against gay practices due to religious beliefs and more importantly have the people who are coming to listen a sound clash in the homosexual venue have the right to complain if a man brush past them close and smile in the manner a female does.
Chin has a good relationship with the gay community and is a gay advocate putting down soundclash for a period to focus on throwing his full support behind Keith Shebadda Ramsey a Jamaican comedian and suspected homosexual so it shouldn’t be any surprise as the Promotor why Chin would chose a gay club to host a dance.
Maybe Irish and Chin as pioneers of the soundclash culture are planning to introduce soundclashes first openly gay sound system just like they shocked the world all them years ago with Mighty Crown. Let’s wait and see however my sound and me ain’t going to play no reggae in a gay club out of respect for those that built this and myself. Who ever chooses to go to the gay club with the homosexual microphone I ain’t homophobic but good luck.
I am not the most cosmopolitan but at the same time I understand about stretching boundaries I myself had a porn star on my sound for a time however the gay agenda in today’s media I believe its confusing to the youths. In our community’s we have enough confusion with systematic and institutional racism and fake people.
Reggae music/soundclash is our place where we can be ourselves where we express ourselves, it’s our escape, our world. When you put reggae in a world where we can’t be ourselves where we have to watch everybody not because of situations we are used to but for situations we ain’t prepared for then that makes reggae something different. It’s like the no smoking ban in most venues that changed reggae and the whole vibe and now again it seems they want to change it again. No matter how many reggae records Sheran, Beiber or any of these people outside of our culture make it’s still not accepted into our world.
