songs that are definitely about being trans (but not really)


Recommended Posts

thought i would share my trans playlist. for some reason i have a lot of fun taking songs by (presumably) cis artists about (presumably) cis things and reading transness into them. some of these are cheerful and optimistic, others not so much, haha.


Rio - Mika

Why Am I Like This - Orla Gartland

The Cure - Little Mix

I Don't Feel Anything - Ashley Strongarm

Lucky - Britney Spears

Mistaken Identity - Delta Goodrem

Carolina - Harry Styles

Gene Kelly - Felix Hagan and the Family

Steer - Missy Higgins

The Sweet Escape - Gwen Stefani

Shake Me Awake - The Dear Hunter

Be Human - Scott Matthew

Girl Crush - Harry Styles

Drugstore Perfume - Gerard Way

Sweet Sixteen - Hilary Duff


forgive me for how very late-2000s this is, haha. since everyone's at different stages with different perspectives (and different musical eras), i would love to hear your suggestions!

idk who wrote the song, but This is Me from The Greatest Showman totally resonates for me as a trans person.

Not sure if this really counts. A lot of Against Me!'s catalog seems to be about being trans in some way or another.  Laura Jane Grace, the lead is trans, she came out mid career of the band, but even before she did, you can get some feeling of being trans in their music.  I fell in love with their music before long before she came out, when she did, it just made it that more awesome.

I thought the same from the moment I heard it.  I thought it would be a great trans theme song.

Benj Pasek and Justin Hall wrote the music. 


It is a song performed by the Trans Chorus Of Los Angeles at its concerts since last year.  It definitely describes our community and is a lot of fun to do.

"Slow Me Down" by Emmy Rossum https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiLcw4juIMk


For a while I wasn't sure if I should transition and was worried that if I was not "really" transgender, I'd get a negative reaction to the changes in my body. Time was quickly ticking away and I was getting older, which meant hormones would be less effective. I just wish I could have stopped time, or at least slowed it down. The older we get the closer we are to the end of life. Since time seems to go fast, my life could quickly fly by while I was deciding, and could end up living a lie (living my whole life in the wrong gender).

I really wish that America had its mind opened and not so much fear and hate towards trans. people.


I think we all do.

Amanda Lear was born with a name Alain and became a muse of Salvador Dali.

She was a very good friend of April Ashley until Ashley came out to the world before her surgery. Amanda then decided to go separe ways with April afraid that she may tell the press that her friend had some dirty laundry.


Even today, Amanda Lear refuses to tell the world that she had a sex change in Casablanca and that she was born as Alain.


Here it is little about Amanda Lear always hiding herself behind her finger.

You know, I remember Boy George's early career, but I had NO idea he was still recording. Neat!

George is perhaps the number one DJ in Europe. He is still recording and makes fabulous songs. I am a big fan of George, I have all of his songs including the ones he participated with.

My favorite so far is King Of Everything

When I clicked on that link it showed me an ad first about an "innovative bra" that looked like nothing more than pieces of rubber placed over the nipples.

I have two pairs of those. They're sticky rubber under cloth. I wouldn't wear them to go jogging or anything, but they do OK for keeping the girls "up and forward."

The link works for me, it goes directly to Boy George's video titled Yes We Can


I swear, I did  not sent any "funny" pictures

      Good evening   We lost a teen from our teen group over the weekend.  Right now they are calling it an unintentional overdose.     Regardless of if it was accidental or not, it is always sad to lose a child.  I pray the family will remember him for the life he lived.  It has become so terribly difficult for our transgender children. I know many who have lost their medical care.  So many doctors who treated transgender teens are being forced to stop providing care.  And I am aware of teens who don’t want to be forced to go through puberty as someone they know they aren’t.  please, do something to try to stop the few that are forcing doctors and parents to stop helping our kids.  We’ve been through this we know how difficult it is.   Willow

      Ladies I am not sure if this is the place for this but it seems to fit.  Kathy and Ashley your words hit home in so many ways.     my question is, how do you know when it is time to step out into public as your true self?  My wife and I have talked about going to a known LGBT bar, but we both share a fear of running into some one who would know me.  This could possibly destroy a 30 year plus career, or not. Money is it would.    Any advice?

      Target is great    Found lots of great things there.  Love me sleep set of shorts and satiny top.     also one of my favorite sets ( bra and panty) are from adore me, that my wife got me.   also for clothes in general old navy has been great.

      I think males can care about having things they want to conceal now these days.    My experience at makeup stores has all come after I started transitioning, but even when there were hardly any changes happening yet it was clear that you don't need to explain anything to anyone except what you want to do with their products so they can help you buy their stuff.    I'm sure there are a bazillion youtubes on makeup that will show you what to do with concealer, almost all of them better at instructions than me.

      I sadly don't have any bearded dragons, since my parents are very much of the "no pets until our current ones pass away" mindset, but I'd love to get one eventually! Perhaps when I'm older and move out...    As for Skyrim, I actually haven't played it! I've heard about it, though, and it sounds interesting. Is it a good game?

      Am I the -censored- for going through my girlfriends phone?   So yesterday I had walked with my now ex girlfriend to her job interview. It was a 45 min walk and it killed my legs but I did it to make her happy and be there for her. Fast forward to when we get there. She hands me her phone to play games on. A little bit of context before this, she had lied to me about her suspension so I was kinda having a hard time trusting her (trust issues lmao) So I go into her Microsoft teams (which is what i talk to her off of because I dont have a phone) I see another person in her messages so I go and look and I see them flirting and saying I love you to each other. So i took this guys contact and sent it to myself and deleted it from our messages once i saved it to my contacts. After that I get mad and storm off into the mcdonalds bathroom so I don't cause a scene while shes doing her interview. Then she walks in and repeatedly asks whats wrong because I was visibly pissed.     I proceeded to say nothing because I was just gonna let it go for the sake of our relationship. She then asked why I was lying to her. I said "So its not okay for me to lie to you but, you can lie to me repeatedly" She then asked what I was talking about and I mentioned the "friend" in her phone and their conversations. She proceeded to tell me she didn't say any of those things, then she "blocked" him and said he meant nothing to her.  Fast forward to 11:07 today. The guy finally responds and tells me "Yeah that's cool bro but why she had me as her Facebook status and not you" then she messages me and says me and her need to talk. (Proving that she unblocked him when I was out of view)  we keep talking and she comes at me like I'm in the wrong. saying things like "U think idk yall texted each other tf u doing going behind my back to do -crap-" and "Yk what [Dead Name]  just bc ur unhappy in life don't mean u gotta -expletive- up mine" I proceeded to tell her that she -toasted- up her own life by cheating and lying.  It got to the point where I was so mad I was thinking of telling her whole family so she would get in trouble. I still might consider it if she tries me.

      Akira I’m def going to rewatch soon. I’m always streaming my games with a show or movie or anime playing tbh ,with very little game sound. But I own- modern warfare 2 how is it I get to gold 2 rank often have the most kills being the mvp when you see how I play.  I’m  just stuck at gold 2  like how random team mates are holding me down, when you see the scoreboard shows I did my part and maybe more. 😝TTV tag I’ve had pplrandomly  visit and see. Recent show I binged thru games is totally spy’s 😝   &  Almost work time.

      Minecraft I recently bought after all the peer pressure and stuff I just can’t get into it. I thought the survival modes would be fun but when there’s 100000 of different servers idk 🤷‍♂️ . Never heard of play date site thing what is that? & monument thing isn’t that a puzzle like game I’ve seen on steam or epic games or something where it has all these nice visuals ? I saw a few games like that and I keep thinking I might enjoy them. enjoyed a bit of some ‘indie’ games idk if they’re called that, like have a nice death ? That was interesting

      Hi,   I was wondering if anyone had any advice on using concealer. I have a lot of blemishes around my eyes and a few moles that I would like to conceal, but I've never used concealer before.   I'm not entirely out yet and still experimenting with makeup, but thought about going to a store and talk to someone about what shade etc to use. I'll be going as male, so wondered if there was any advice for that too? What have your experience been?   Kira x
