LE BAIN: After the election of November 2016, you said, "There's this sense that we have to be fiercer and more unapologetic about who we are." That sounds like a good motto Pride. In DRØME's vision, what should Pride stand for in 2018?
CAROLINE D'ARCY GORMAN: Pride 2018 should be about making spaces where everyone feels welcome and able to celebrate themselves, however they choose. Pride 2018 should definitely involve a lot of dancing and techno, as well.
"Drøm" is the Danish word for "dream." What's DRØME's dream?
The dream has always been to empower young creatives and build a strong community of artists. Through our aesthetic and our message, we hope to expand DRØME well beyond the pages of the magazine and really embody the alternative voice of the generation. Our digital community is super important, but it’s hard to facilitate meaningful relationships through digital means. So, our ultimate goal is to acquire a physical space and continue to produce content through video, print, and online. The space will allow us to focus on building a collaborative community and enable meaningful connections in person. We also want the space to turn into a nightclub in the evenings.
