Self Care Mix #005 - Kirby Roseina by The Vagina Series
Originally from South London, Kirby began mixing at the age of 7 when her father, Selector Gee, first introduced her to DJing.
Although young, Kirby has played at the Boiler Room head offices and has guest mixed for Soul Circle Radio (Los Angeles) and is an emerging DJ at Roundhouse Radio.
In conversation with Kirby:
What makes you a phenomenal woman?
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
- MAYA ANGELOU
How would you have introduced the topic of periods and puberty to your younger self? Do you think the people around you (school, family, media) did a good job of sharing what puberty would be like?
I would’ve done it super casually, and would slip it in a conversation based on having a bellyache or growing pains. That way, it wouldn’t be uncomfortable or embarrassing – which it shouldn’t be.
Lastly, everyone grew up with different names for their vagina/vulva area - what did you grow up calling it?
