Straight Edge Interview Project

This project aims to collect in-depth interviews with women/girls who are straight edge from around the world.

This project is NOT about women/girls who are famous, in bands, or doing anything “scene related”. The only criteria are that participants identify as female and are straight edge. The questions were sourced from within our community and cover a wide range of topics from the definition of straight edge, to the impact being straight edge has had on relationships.

If you would like to participate, please contact us and I will send you a link to the interview form. It’s LONG.

ell, I grew up in a place heavily influenced by alcohol. Everyone in my family would drink at parties, and since I got into music earlier, finding the ‘sex, drugs and rock n’ roll’ lifestyle also influenced me. I started stealing drinks from my parents at around 10, because I thought it was “cool” and that since everyone did it, I should too. An older friend tried talking me out of it, but I just thought it was silly.

For me it is living in peace and commitment without alcohol, tobacco and drugs. I also try to stay away from caffeine as much as possible as well, and in case I am sick - firstly turn to natural medicine (like herbs) and not prescribed by doctors - I am not a fan of it.

My definition of straight edge is someone who loves punk but doesn't love the self-destructive activities that usually go along with the punk scene. Being straight edge means a life commitment to be free of drugs, alcohol, tobacco or anything that could be considered self-destructive.

Straight edge is a culture that originated from a music subgenre and contains special features of socio-cultural attitude and behavior. The main pillars are no alcohol, no drugs, no smoke. These are mandatory. Some add more ideas such as veganism which I find great but would not count as a mandatory pillar of straight edge. What some people tend to forget: It's not only a lifestyle or a political point of view, it's also a family.
