G.L.O.S.S. - Trans Day of Revenge

In light of recent tragic events, and as the politicizing of the Orlando mass murder begins to take hold of social media in spades, and with the hordes of states who currently have anti-trans bathroom bills on their dockets, maybe it's time to listen to some pissed off queer and trans punk rock.  And so we get "Trans Day of Revenge," a brand spanking new EP from Olympia, Washington's G.L.O.S.S., and a rager, albeit a short one, from start to finish.  Listen to the title track below, download it here from the band, and pre-order the 7" from Total Negativity.  And remember that you know a gay person or a trans person.  He/she may be a friend, or a family member, or a co-worker, or associate, or neighbor.  You might not even be aware of it.  Said person may not be "out" because of the trials and tribulations (and danger more explicitly) that come along with that decision.  But they are people all the same.  They deserve your respect.  They deserve your understanding and acceptance.  They deserve to be able to pee in peace.  They deserve to be able to hold hands with their boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse or kiss in public without being marginalized, mocked, spat at, or worse.  They deserve to be safe and to be able to live their lives without fear and without hate.  That being said, let's rage together.

And fuck you Dan Patrick.
