Ivy and I recorded 18 songs in late December with Jesse Carlos Parsons. at Church Street Studios in San Francisco. When we are done with mixing and mastering, the recording will be released via Bandcamp as a fundraiser to benefit the Emma Deboncoeur Trans Health Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is named in honor of our beloved friend, the late trans badass, Emma, who passed away in spring 2018. The scholarship will provide financial assistance for UCSF and UC Berkeley students who share Emma’s commitment to improving the health and well-being of trans and gender non-conforming people, with preference given to students of trans experience, particularly those of color. Each year, the scholarship will support one student on each campus who is working on transgender health and wellness or other transgender-related areas in research or community work. This scholarship will help to ensure that Emma’s legacy in health equity and trans health will continue at UCSF and UC Berkeley for years to come.
You can check out a preview of the recording below, our acoustic rendering of our old Allergic To Bullshit song, This Train I Ride.
