DJ team Pxssy Palace have decided to leave Radar Radio, publishing a damning statement online.
The crew have held down a popular show on the station for some time, but have decided to end their relationship with the online broadcaster.
Publishing a three part statement on Instagram, Pxssy Palace take issue with the station's practices, including "a string of disappointing experiences".
“We feel that they have tokenised women, feminism, queer and trans culture, and Black and other people of colour, for capitalist purposes whilst making little to no effort to practise intersectionality within their own organisation.”
The crew also state that they have already spoken to senior members of staff over their concerns, which include "allowing the airing of sexist, homophobic and transphobic shows, with no evident attempt to apologise, or take reparatory action following this" and "organisational racism which is indicated by a lack of balance in how staff and DJ’s are paid and promoted, with cherry picking of white men over POC".
Check out the full statement below.
The final Pxssy Palace show took place on April 5th - Radar Radio have yet to respond to the statement.
