Quotes[edit | edit source]

« I do believe there are biases and stigma around non-men in the music industry that make it feel cold and uninviting to anyone who doesn’t fit the masculine role you see way too often in every part of the music industry. I can only hope that we can influence more women and non-men to do what they can to make their place and make their mark in this industry.[7] »
« Before the beginning of quarantine, like even on tour, I was still like [...] "I don't really know what I am but I guess I'm just still cishet, I'm still cis, I'm still straight, whatever," and then I got home, started really rethinking my life, and I'm like, "I am none of that." I am not straight, I am not cisgender, I am everything I never really thought I was.[3] »
