In a semi-close-up shot, a male person looks towards the camera. The gaze is scrutinising and the chin slightly lifted, Franky Gogo looks down. The eyes are half-open, the eyelashes made up in blue. On his head he wears a wide purple hood, tousled hair with dyed blond tips protruding into his forehead underneath. In his left ear he wears a golden earring with a golden cross dangling from it. His sleeveless top is made of transparent, shimmering purple fabric, underneath he is naked. His upper body is turned slightly to the right so that his left nipple is visible. His left arm is resting on his hip. The numbers 1813 are tattooed on his fingers. Tattoos are also visible on the other arm. Franky Gogo wears grey balloon trousers, of which only the waistband is visible, and a black belt on which the number 1994 is written. Franky Gogo is standing in front of a white wall of a house; to the left, another person can be made out in the distance, who seems to have entered the picture by chance. The picture has a slight red cast.

Franky Gogo

Franky Gogo’s songs evoke fear, desire and violence – the feelings of his struggle. A fight against oppression. Franky Gogo’s weapon of choice is music, oscillating between techno, pop and desire. Franky Gogo breaks the rules, he is queer, and he has freed himself from the stereotypes of a binary identity and sexuality. This includes the help of drums, his main instrument. Just as Franky Gogo is transgender, so is his music. Music for people who want to discover something new – beyond the norm. The sounds of the French artist, which have also been remixed by Planningtorock, are designed to make you dance. Because Franky Gogo knows: a life without rhythm means a life without heart.
