Monday music: trans

On the plus side, I’ve had a full end of year social calendar. On the down side, I’ve been having some pains in fingers & elbow which put me off doing too much online. Put together, this means blogging has slipped down my list of priorities a bit recently.

So last week I missed posting about International Transgender Day of Remembrance  (TDoR, 20 November), which commemorates transgender people who’ve died because of stigma-related violence. But it’s never too late to remember, or to celebrate the lives & achievements of transgender people.

Here’s Titica, Angola kuduro star and UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador.

And here’s Area Scatter, who may or may not have thought of himself as transgender. He was apparently married with children, but that doesn’t really mean a lot, in a society where homosexuality and anything associated with it is generally frowned upon.

Intrigued? I leave you to do your own research.
