„ich will keine toleranz durch eure worte, ich will akzeptanz in euren herzen und fordere beweise durch eure taten.“

.mourn the dead and celebrate the living!

this is an attempt to make a list full of music that might be relevant for people interestet in and_or being/identifying and_or having a past as a trans(*)(gender/sexual), wrongly assigned at birth, agender/neutrois, genderqueer, non-binary, gender-non-conforming, etc. person.
please do not assume, that any musician/band on this list necessarily is/identifies as anything of the above. it’s just my opinion, that this music might belong on this list. it also might only be the content of one song, that made me put that musician/band on this list. also gender/s/labels can and do change. and since i am planning to update this list from time to time but are far from checking in on other peoples identities/labels/lifes on a regular basis i am happy, if you are a musician/band being on this list but not wanting to (anymore), if you‘ll let me know. i‘ll be happy to remove you as soon as i can. i‘m pretty aware of the concept of stealth and risks of personal safety as well and hope that anyone checking out this list, is and or starts to be/do so too.

i got inspired to do this reseach by these two lists from jayrome robinet:

this list is far from being complete, i just started my research and i think, there is/are so much/many more out there!
so – please, feel free to add to this list, i‘d be more than grateful!

also this is what/who i found by searching the internet. please keep in mind, that i didn‘t check every single musician/band on this list on how „political correct“ they are. and i‘m not the one to judge either, i just like this list to be as long as possible in order to keep people from saying: „there is no (good) music by/for trans(*)(gender/sexual), etc. people“. because there is. a lot actually!
