Hi  Sugar!

Lina Bradford is New York City's quintessential DJ straight from the golden era of nightlife to spinning the parties of the moment.


An original multi-hyphenate, her work has cemented her internationally as an actress, radio personality as well as the producer and star of her interview series, "In the Dollhouse with Lina." A longtime activist, she's also a board member and global ambassador for the Hetrick-Martin Institute and chair member for GMHC.


The creative, native New Yorker who got her start as a professionally trained dancer has been described as the “Princess of Light." Earning the title by bringing people together with music and her signature zest for life, she's connected with audiences around the globe. Shapeshifting through decades as an iconic nightlife personality, Lina thrives on connection and working "the gig called life." Her consecutive, 10-year DJ residency on Fire Island Pines made her a staple in the gay enclave during summer months and was commemorated with her documentary, "Linnish".

Best known for her rotation of popular weekly parties, she’s the go-to for playing discographies from the greats in dance, deep house and disco.

An integral part of New York City nightlife, Lina embodies advocacy for Black trans women leading by example, working with organizations like SAGE and GLAAD and even providing music for the 2022 White House Correspondents Dinner.



So this is the cutting up, sugar! Music is Everyness 2me. And here's just a little taste of the experience!

The Looks

The Looks

Growing up creating and making outfits for my Barbies, I was always conscious of the power of fantasy, and now I get to be a life-size grown-up Malibu Barbie doll!


So Pressed

There's so much cookie, but here is just a little bit of the rabbit hole. That is my life in the Press, sugar!

A beacon of being an only child - memorabilia to me, was always significant to document, even before camera phones. I made certain people take videos because I knew capturing history was very important.


Like I always say, if you don't know where you came from, you don't know where you're going, sugar!


Get a taste, sugar!
