Becoming More Inclusive: Grimalkin Records’ Tips for White Folks in DIY Music

LGBTQ-centred label Grimalkin Records have released a statement and series of steps that white folks in the music scene can take to promote inclusivity and social justice in and through their work. The statement was written by several of the collective’s Black members and illustrates the steps the label took prior to forming and continues to take in an ongoing capacity.

We’re sharing them here as well as on our socials as we believe they may be of use to those in the scene, particularly white-run DIY labels and sites such as our own. They highlight crucial steps we can all be taking to do this vital work, and we will be taking them on board moving forward.
