Feel-good tracks chosen by DJ Honey Dijon for the les girls les boys happier times T-shirt, in support of UK Youth.
In aid of the les girls les boys happier times T-shirt, raising much needed crisis funds for charity UK Youth, the iconic DJ and trans-rights advocate Honey Dijon has hand-picked a selection of tracks to lift your mood and evoke happier times ahead.
Honey Dijon has a special place in our hearts. Being who you are, and being comfortable in your own skin, is what we value the most, and Honey embodies that more than anyone or anything. Chicago born and bred, she plays and produces her unique style of underground electronic music around the world (back when we all could travel). Her sets are known for their strong programming, passion and integrity, flowing between house or techno with a warm, hypnotic feel. She’s a key voice in the transgender rights movement, and a beloved fashion icon for many.

UK Youth charity has been chosen by Seana Redmond, the artist behind the original happier times poster (find out more here). Founded over 100 years ago, UK Youth’s mission is to ensure all young people aged 9-25 are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. For millions of disadvantaged and vulnerable young people across the UK, covid-19 has made life even harder. Young people are now at increased risk of being abused and exploited, suffering from loneliness, unable to be at their safe spaces, such as schools, and youth organisations are facing permanent closure. Every donation to UK Youth counts. To support them, purchase our happier times T-shirt or donate to UK Youth direct.
"Music should bring light into your life during this time of political unrest and the current pandemic. We need light more than ever."
