This is an album about being transgender;
it's about not being able to tell anyone who you are,
about the confusion and shame and
hate that I felt about myself,
about the isolation and loneliness and
false persona that I had to put on,
about the messages that exist all around you,
telling you what you're "supposed to be."
This is an album about cynicism,
about having no hope for the world.
It's about how I'm not excused from
being part of the problem.
This is an album about frustration;
frustration with a system that refuses
to work with you.
frustration with other people,
frustration with yourself.
This is an album about how, occasionally,
a spark of optimism and gratefulness can shine through.
This is an album about the inevitability of death.
This is an album that I'm proud to release,
it's my personal experiences, my outlook.
- this is life.
