As Summer creeps up, the Not A Phase team have been blasting some of our favourite songs created by trans+ artists or bands including one trans+ member to get us in the mood for festival season, especially with Mighty Hoopla just around the corner!
The playlist features some differing genres of music, from the house and dance-pop anthems of Tom Rasmussen’s debut album that details their experiences as a non-binary person to the hard dance tracks of TAAHLIAH whose music also explores her identity as a trans+ person. Bimini’s fun, camp anthems are honest and full of heart and Angelica Ross’s recent single proves again her versatility as a performer. Other music featured in the playlists includes songs from Freddie Lewis, Ethel Cain, Sam Smith, Laura Les, G Flip and Liniker, as well as music from MUNA and Pale Waves, both of whom have one member who identifies with part of the trans+ community.
Whilst the current landscape for our community is harsh, it’s incredibly heartening to see trans+ adults creating incredible art and expressing themselves in the most honest and authentic way and sharing their stories with the world.
