To many, transgender people remain a oddity, not a focus for adulation. Granted we have differences but crossing the gender divide is Matt Nathanson with his new single “Kinks Shirt”.
The clip features a love story involving a transgender individual and — refreshingly — approaches the relationship in an incredibly nonchalant way.
“The thing I love about this video is that it shows two people in love and it never makes a big deal out of the fact that one is trans,” said Nathanson in a statement to The Huffington Post. “The video is touching and funny, while at the same time making a very definite statement about equality and acceptance. Let people be who they are… the only way forward in this life is with acceptance and equality for everyone, period.”
