Expect to hear an array of fun party tunes when transgender DJ, Victoria Anthony is behind the decks. An exclusive fusion of club mixes, fresh pop and timeless tunes. She also doubles up as a showgirl and likes to keep both her DJ sets and shows sexy, camp, and energetic. Her passion for music developed at a young age with the encouragement from her mother to join local youth entertainment groups. This led to the completion of her Bachelor of Music (Honors) degree at The University of Western Sydney in 2011, majoring in Musicology.
It came time to celebrate her graduation from university. Victoria found herself out and about on the Sydney gay scene every weekend. Dancing in the darkness until dawn, to all the fabulous tunes played by the local gay and lesbian DJ’s. She always left the clubs feeling amazed by the DJ’s who brought such a great atmosphere to the clubs. This inspired her to save up for her own DJ decks and enter a DJ competition at Stonewall Hotel in 2012 in which she was a finalist.
Shortly after, she spent 2013 in New York City where she was exposed to a variety of music, and the diverse nightlife the city has to offer. Through her participation in a nude music video shoot, she was given the unique opportunity to DJ regularly at raunchy gay and transgender sex parties in NYC. Returning to Sydney in 2014, she has played at the Mardi Gras after party at Moore Park and a variety of clubs in Sydney. All she ever wants is to be happy, and share her passion for performance and DJing with a fun crowd.
Victoria won Sydney’s Favorite DJ at the 2015 DIVA Awards
