Anthony Hüseyin wears blond curly hair that falls down the back of the neck and almost to the shoulder. Above the ears, the hair is shaved off. Hüseyin can be seen from the side to just above the elbow and is wearing a shimmering strappy top. A black fur is wrapped around Hüseyin's upper body. The left shoulder, over which Hüseyin is looking, is naked. Hüseyin looks towards the camera, but not directly into it. The right hand cradles a retro silver microphone, which Anthony Hüseyin pulls towards themselves. A pearl earring in the left ear is visible, rhinestones form an angle next to the left eye. Hüseyin wears a moustache, lips are shiny. The picture is rather dark, from the right side Hüseyin is illuminated by a green spotlight, from behind white light can be seen.

Anthony Hüseyin

Anthony Hüseyin is a fluid, constantly changing non-binary arist. Born in conservative Urfa and raised in Istanbul, Hüseyin gave up his Turkish passport to avoid serving in the army, instead earning a master’s degree in vocal jazz in the Netherlands. Following the outbreak of the Gezi protests in 2013, Anthony Hüseyin first addressed the prevailing social and political injustices in Turkey through music. Sometimes melancholic, sometimes jazzy, their songs combine house, techno and nu-disco with Türk Sanat Müzigi (Turkish Art Music). Anthony Hüseyin pays homage to the great pop star Zeki Müren, who lived an openly queer life, telling of their own artistic and personal quest as a queer person.
