TELGATE invites you to paint your lips red and prepare to fall in lust with the queerest side of rock and roll.

With a duty to start riots in 6” platforms, expect fierce androgyny along with music which is unapologetically queer, loud and honest from Aggro-Glam band, TELGATE. Their major musical influences from early psychedelia, glam rock, post punk and riot-grrrl mix together to create a dramatic experience catered towards the eccentrics and the glamorous. Fronted by outspoken transgender and non-binary musicians, TELGATE communicate LGBTQ liberation through music.

“Our priority is to simply be our unfiltered selves, and in just being present as proud and loud ‘queer’ people there may be someone just like us in that audience who feels seen and represented and that’s what matters most to us.”

TELGATE incorporate theatrical performances, androgynous looks with an incendiary rock and roll sound and lyrics rife with outspoken messages. TELGATE have performed across Wales and England for over 4 years, selling out several headline shows and gaining an array of radio play, plus support from the likes of BBC Horizons and Forte Project. They recently released their second single “Love Zone” with Welsh indie label Rose Parade Recording Co. which incited Adam Walton of BBC Wales to describe Vocalist Casper’s voice as “soon to become iconic”.
