Founders

Identical Records is a queer record label founded by non-binary musicians, Mai and Lei Gryffydd. Though they initially released the self titled Acid Casualty 7 inch in 2010, Identical Records was officially launched in 2016.

After many years as musicians within the Australian music scene, Mai and Lei were disillusioned with the lack of representation and support for musicians who were not white, heterosexual, cis-men. Their experiences, together with intersectional feminism, inspired the creation of Identical Records.

In October 2017, V joined as a Co-Director of Identical Records, alongside Mai and Lei Gryffydd.
