Andrea Di Giovanni – Forbidden love

Det var ett halvår sedan som jag skrev om den androgyna Andrea Di Giovanni första gången. Då hette låten Shame resurrection och nu är det dags för Andrea att släppa singeln Forbidden love.
En mörk och fängslande låt som tar upp HBTQ-kampen till ett läckert R&B-beat.
Di Giovanni berättar för bloggen.

Forbidden love is a song that touches two pivotal topics for the LGBTQ+ community: the struggle to love who you truly wish to love— and yourself— and the need for the community to respect and cherish our history and give back to our trans folks, especially trans POC.

As an activist myself, I felt the need to highlight how in 2018 there are still 72 countries where being queer is prohibited or criminalised; there are concentration camps for LGBTQ+ people in Chechnya and we’ve seen an uprising hate toward the trans/non binary/GNC community, resulting in the deaths of more than three hundred trans women all over the world. I want to talk to my beautifully diverse community and create a dialogue regarding the fact that we have to act as a group, caring for each others’ issues and not only the ones we feel personally touched by.”

Så en stark låt för HBTQ-kampen över hela välden, men speciellt för de utsatta i Tjetjenien och för de transsexuella.
