Singer, Gavin Russom comes out as transgender

Gavin Russom also known as "Black Meteoric" as finally found joy in becoming a woman. The LCD soundsystem musician in an interview with Grindr said she had always wish she remain a transgender person all her life.


“This is my fifth decade being alive, and in each of those decades, there’s been a time where I’ve tried to say, ‘Hey, I think I’m transgender!".

The singer who still prefers to be referred to as Gavin said she had always felt the female spectrum in her, she also recounted the time she had to wear black and white shoes beloging to a lady to school as a kid, not minding the fact that she might even get bullied or isolated for it, among her classmates. She became strong in 1997 when she attended the dance scene in New York.

After spending five years in Berlin, Russom relocated back to New York, where she joined LCD Soundsystem to work on “This Is Happening,” which was set to be the group’s last album. The group staged a comeback in 2015, however, and in 2016 announced plans to release a new album and go on an expanded tour in the next year. At that point, Russom decided she couldn’t contain her identity any longer.

“My body rejected it in the same way that it now utterly rejects going into a men’s bathroom or when somebody calls me ‘sir,'” she said.

According to her, her LCD Soundsystem group has been there for her ever since she revealed her transition but note that she gets that societal fear in her anytime she is coming out.

“I am someone who has spoken out on both women’s rights and trans rights for a long time,” Russom said, “but when I started to transition myself, that was one of the most shocking things. I’m carrying so many of these things around with me. That’s been challenging to work through — having those preconditioned societal ideas of what transgender women can do.”

The 'May born' star said she hopes and believes to offer helping hands to those who want to become a transgender but dont know what the society will do with them.
