Kai: A Transgender Child
The YouTube channel, My Genderation, released this series on a transgender child late 2016. I figured with what has happened, posting a well made documentary on a transgender child is appropriate.
It’s one year later and trans boy Kai is further on the path of social transition. In this video Kai and his mum talk about the onset the wrong puberty, hormone blockers and life as a young trans person. Will he be prescribed hormone blockers, just in time?
Fox has been filming Kai since he was 9 years old. Kai is now 12 years old and talks about his hormone blockers. He also shares his views on coming out, his transition, school and the future. This film was created as part of Trans Youth Week on My Genderation: 5th – 12th November.
Jordan Gray on getting signed, trans rights, and brand new single Platinum
After impressing judges and viewers on BBC’s The Voice UK, Jordan Gray is finally ready to release new music as a signed artist.
Following a year of travelling around the country performing at various Pride events and establishing a name for herself, the talented artist signed with The Record Label and is preparing to release her brand new single, Platinum.
We caught up with her and talked about her move from an independent to a signed artist and new music, her love for Paloma Faith, and on being the first trans artist to possibly hit the charts.
Firstly, congrats on getting signed! How does it feel to move from being an independent artist to a signed one? Thank you! It’s been a long time coming but I feel good – it’s what I had always wanted. I think though, that said, anytime you see anybody out celebrating with champagne because they’ve just signed a contract means they didn’t read it properly while their downing their sorrows, because basically it’s just a really long administrative process. The real work is already happening, you know, but I’m excited.
Let’s talk about your new single Platinum – the sound is quite different from your time on The Voice, isn’t it? It’s something you didn’t hear from me on The Voice for sure, it’s starts like a ballad, then it goes to what I guess is essentially like modern disco. It’s not vintage sounding – it does draw from Florence and the Machine actually, in fairness, there’s a bit of Florence in there.
