June has written for gal-dem, Vice, daikon* zine and will be featured in two publications in 2022. When not working, they can be found dancing and serving looks in grotty basements and nightclubs until the early hours of the morning all around London.

Omar Jordan Phillips is a producer and movement artist interested in driving artistic work for social change. Omar quickly became a cornerstone of the London Ballroom Scene, where they are known as Bam Bam of the iconic unforgettable House of Revlon. Performing locally and internationally, facilitating workshops, and curating events. Bam Bam believes in the power of Voguing as a form of social activism.
