Official video debut of “Trans Is Beautiful” from Oregon hardcore punk unit Cliterati. The track comes courtesy of the band’s Ugly Truths / Beautiful Liesfull-length, slated to drop on August 30th via Tankcrimes.
Cliterati vocalist Ami Lawless on the track
“From my earliest memories until 3rd or 4th grade. I believed I was a boy although I was AFAB. My mother, who was undocumented from Mexico living in the USA would hit me and yell at me for saying I was a boy. I believe she didn’t want to draw attention to us. It took me years to figure myself out. After having top surgery a few years back, I finally become comfortable in my own skin, for the first time in my life. I identify as trans non-binary/emby/two-spirit and my pronouns are they/them. I have quite a few friends who identify this way as well. This song is for all the kids who are still figuring themselves out… we see you and are here for you. Let your light shine.”
