"Beautiful Expressions" - Time Out Sydney
Self described as the Asian empress of the gay streets of Sydney, Dyan Tai has emerged from the stages of the local drag scene. Now evolved into a pop artist, he is set to make a statement through his music and live performances.
Highly regarded for his yin and yang blend of modern pop music infused with traditional Asian instrumentation, his music is sonically paired with his expansive androgynous lithe vocals.
His lyrics and live performances are thoughtful and liberating; centering around his upbringing in conservative Malaysia and his quest to find freedom wherever we find ourselves.
Armed with his mirror-coated keytar, Dyan has performed to audiences across the country and is involved with various cabaret and queer parties across Sydney. He is one of the shortlisted artists selected to participate in Performance Space’s Queer Development Program and which will take place in 2021 as part of Sydney Mardi Gras Festival.
As an event producer, he continues to raise awareness of diversity and visibility of Queer & Trans People of Colour (QTPOC) by producing and curating the WORSHIP: QUEER CABARET in Sydney; and spreading messages of equality at underground queer parties in Asia.
