“I couldn’t be more proud and excited to say this mix exclusively features black trans femmes & trans femmes of color. The idea came to me while I was debating how I could tell the story of my transition and everything that has lead me up to this point—then it dawned on me that only my sisters would understand, only my sisters could help me communicate and that they are what has lead me here. It was beyond special to learn about my beautiful talented sisters from all over the world, to hear about each of their hardships while listening to the incredible work they made in spite of them, thinking about how we are all connected and what it meant to be literally connecting us through compiling this mix. It was a really emotional and illuminating full-circle process for me and I am so happy to share this with all the black trans femmes & trans femmes in the world and for them to have something to remind them that their dreams are very possible, I wanna give them everything I didn’t have. As I prepare for surgery and for what it means to finally be myself, to meet myself for the first time, I couldn’t imagine a better soundtrack to carry me through it. ” - @br0nz3_g0dd3ss

one of the things I’m most hopeful about is the black and brown trans femme musical renaissance we’re witnessing rn; this mix is a miracle, but there’s a dozen other brilliant artists like Elysia Crampton, Jackie Shane, Honey Dijon, and Nomi Ruiz who could have been featured. like i could spend years just listening to music by black and brown trans women and never get through it all.
