Michael Upson

Love Muscle

Michael Upson has been at the forefront of the DIY party scene in Leeds for the last decade, most recently founding the pumping gay dance party: Love Muscle. Starting just over two years ago in response to the generally dire state of queer night-life in Leeds, Love Muscle aims to provide an inclusive space for the LGBTQ population of the city with a slightly more discerning music taste. “We want to make people feel good about themselves and to celebrate their sexuality through the music that’s ultimately a part of their history.” The night also operates a strict no photography and safer spaces policy to allow people to truly explore who they want to be uninhibited. Love Muscle and its subsequent radio show on KMAH has provided a platform for him to bring some of the finest underground queer talents in electronic music to the city.
