Yalda shares his journey from Iran to Australia as a refugee.
Yalda is an Iranian queer man, Radical Faerie, DJ, musician, poet, activist, and masseur. Now a Lismore local, Yalda grew up surrounded by lush green nature in the north of Iran, near the Caspian Sea. He attended an Islamic High School and his experiences in Iran led him to develop a strong passion for human rights and protesting injustice. Two things guide him in life; music and massage. He uses both to work on the spirit, soul, body, heart, and mind. He loves nothing more than to make people dance, jump, scream, and feel pure joy all night long with his DJ controller.
