Deborah Anne Dyer (aka "Skin"): Lesbian Icon: Who? When? Where?

Gay Profiles, Gay PhotosDyer took on the nickname 'Skin' when she and three fellow London musicians formed the band Skunk Anansie in 1994. Dyer met bass player Cass (Richard Keith Lewis) in an Ealing coffee bar. They later met guitarist Ace (Martin Ivor Kent), at the Splash club in Kings Cross, and drummer Mark Richardson at the Kerrang awards. The name 'Skunk Anansie' comes from two animals - the skunk, obviously, and a fictional spider from Jamaican folk stories.

The band was noted for its multi-racial talent, as well as Dyer's unconventional, energetic, hard-hitting vocals. Her official web biography says of her: "Skin was everything your traditional pallid frontman wasn't. For starters, she was female. She was also bald, black and searingly intelligent. Magazine editors swooned: here, at last, was a pop star who could articulate, who could hold her own corner, who could do more than shake maracas."

This was especially important at the time Skunk Anansie formed - it was the beginning of Britain's 'Britpop' phenomenon: Independent musicians, with a sense of individuality, were becoming highly favoured by a lucrative cross section of youth culture, over the ready-made commercial pop that had been topping the charts in the late 80s and early 90s. This was the music era of which Skunk Anansie became an important part. ...more...

THE DAILY VELVET : QUOTATIONS OF THE DAY

Annie LeibovitKeep up to date make the Daily Velvet your home page; World, UK, Lesbian/Gay and Velvet news, horoscopes, cartoon, quotes of the day, this day in history and much more…

 Susan Sontag - AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide. Or murder.

Annie Leibovitz  - If it makes you cry, it goes in the show.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette  - A woman who thinks she is intelligent demands the same rights as man. An intelligent woman gives up.

Marie Antoinette - I was a queen, and you took away my crown; a wife, and you killed my husband; a mother, and you deprived me of my children. My blood alone remains: take it, but do not make me suffer long.

 Amelie Mauresmo - Right now I have more confidence in myself. I grew up.
