As LGBT History Month wraps up, a San Francisco area radio show has curated a playlist of songs by transgender artists who are continuing to shift the sound and change the music industry one release at a time. 

Titled "TRANS*CENDENTAL: TRANS*EXCELLENCE," ADP.FM's playlist is comprehensive and consists of music by Honey Dijon, Big Freedia, Pabllo Vittar, and many more. It also features two tracks by the late SOPHIE, a renowned electronic music producer who died following an accidental fall in January 2021.

I feel like I need to figure out exactly where I land and become comfortable in myself as a trans person before I start advocating in those ways. But I do see that in my future."
