About Banshee

Banshee is a feminist blog dedicated to the works and experiences of women and LGBTQIA+ people in music. We feel that even though these artists are doing great things, their representation within the industry is still not enough. We exist to promote, celebrate and encourage discussion of these artists and professionals and their contributions to the music industry.

Assistant Editor

Alex Johnson is a menace whose greatest online achievement is getting hate mail for calling Matthew McConaughey's arms short. She likes movies, boy bands and punk rock, not necessarily in that order
