Cisgender men dominate the DJ scene. However, at The Dinah this year, both women and trans individuals will be given space to spin their jams for queer party-goers. In a landmark move for The Dinah, DJ Automaton has been added to the line-up, making him the first trans person to perform at The Dinah ever.
DJ Automaton (Vincent Domini) grew up in Portland, Oregon and is currently based in Los Angeles as a DJ, Musician, and Event Producer. He is known for parties such as The Grind!, Mugshot, Portland’s Gaycation, guitarist/vocals for the punk/grunge/metal outfit Brother, drummer in Swan Island, XYX a weekly house, 90’s hip hop & R&B party, and CAKE a trans hip hop monthly party in Downtown Los Angeles. He’s influenced by a wide range of genres from psychedelic, punk and funk of the 60’s and 70’s, hip hop of the late 80’s/90’s, and 80’s/90’s grunge and goth.
Some of the other DJ’s for 2016 include queer grrl party scene mainstays such as DJ Lezlee, DJ Asha, Citizen Jane and many more.
