Genderfluid Transfemme Artist & Resident DJ at For the Gworls

Maahd is a Black, genderfluid transfemme artist and serves as the Resident DJ at For The Gworls. Raised in Chicago’s South Side and now living in New York City, they are heavily inspired by house music and other Black electronic dance genres. When they aren’t on the decks, Maahd finds peace learning about herbs and trying new recipes. Maahd believes in curating a club environment for Black trans folks to release, heal, and safely invoke their most authentic selves.

The first For The Gworls party occurred in 2019 on a hot roof in Brooklyn, NY. Just days prior, founder Asanni Armon decided to throw a party to fundraise for two friends that were facing eviction. They tapped Maahd to create a flyer and helped build a playlist, asked a friend if they could use their roof, and the rest is history. They’ve been hosting monthly parties ever since with the end goal of raising money to help Black, trans people pay for their rent and gender-affirming surgeries.
