UPDATE: Thank you so much to everyone who bought or shared my pre-relase single yesterday.
Bandcamp’s profits were about $100,000 (!!!) which will all go to the Transgender Law Center. My sales are just a drop in the bucket but I’m really proud that my music contributed to this massive fundraiser. On average you spent almost 4 times as much as my suggested price: bandcamp’s share came to £10.13 which will go to the TLC, and I’m giving the same (well, £11, rounding up) to Action For Trans Health. Lots of the support came from other trans artists which warms my cynical heart tbh.
I’m overjoyed that my music can materially support activist groups. When I release the full EP at the end of the summer, the digital version will be pay-what-you-can / free, and I’ll keep donating 15% to A4TH.

This is a pre-release for my EP, "Pansy", benefiting the Transgender Law Center in the US and Action For Trans Health in the UK. It is only available for 24 hours, from 8:00am Friday August 4 to 8:00am Saturday August 5, 2017 (GMT).
Today (Friday, August 4, 2017) Bandcamp is donating all of their profits to the Transgender Law Center. Bandcamp takes 15% of every digital purchase, so that means for every £1 sale, £0.15 will go to the TLC. Details: daily.bandcamp.com/2017/07/31/this-friday-stand-with-bandcamp-in-support-of-trans-rights/
On top of that, I'll be donating 15% of my profits today to Action For Trans Health.
It's only £1! Support trans activism and trans artists!
The track "But Why" will be on the Pansy EP. The cover track of Morrissey's "I Am Hated For Loving" (re-imagined by me as a trans love song to self) will not be.
When I release the full EP, the digital version will be free or pay-what-you-want, and I will continue to donate 15% of my earnings from both the digital and physical copies to Action For Trans Health. You can (and should) donate to them too: actionfortranshealth.org.uk/fund/
