I dressed Ziggy Stardust


Samira Ahmed explores the impact of David Bowie on young Asian women in the UK. For these young women, the thin white duke’s genderbending, exotic dress, identity shifts and alien other worldliness was inspirational to the children of migrants. Yet he was a nicely spoken urbane young man a mother could approve of. The obsession with Aladdin Sane or Ziggy Stardust for these women as they recount their emotional connection makes for a really great piece of radio. Have a listen.
