Give these tracks a listen to this Trans Awareness Week
BY ELLA GAUCI
Trans artists have always been trailblazers in the music industry, and have massively helped to shape a number of genres. Look back to performers like Christine Jorgensen, Jackie Shane, and the iconic Gladys Bentley. This Trans Awareness Week we want to celebrate and amplify the voices of the trans artists who are changing the game right now.
You needn’t look much further than the iconic Kim Petras who made history when she became the first openly-trans musician to win a Grammy. We’ve packed this playlist with everything from Kim’s pop hits to songs by icons like Shea Diamond, SOPHIE, and Sex Education’s very own Anthony Lexa.
