About DJ Amarji

Amarji King is a DJ and activist in the Houston queer community. As a pioneer in the city’s nightlife, she has introduced the sounds of the underground ballroom scene to the audiences of some of the biggest clubs in the state. Their blend of deep house, ballroom, and jersey club, means that everyone is bound to be moving when miss King is behind the decks. As one of the first trans DJ’s in the state to have permanent residencies in clubs in both Houston and Austin, she uses her platform to create a safe space and raise funds for all queer identifying members of her community.
