This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

Jayne County is probably the most interesting musician you’ve never heard of.  A regular at the Stonewall Inn, County was one of many trans women who participated at the Stonewall Riots.

She worked alongside the likes of Andy Warhol, David Bowie (having a great influence on his Diamond Dogs tour) and was direct influence on a young Patti Smith, who met County by being cast opposite her in the first of several plays they would do together. While Jayne was already an active musician in what would become the punk rock scene, it would still be several years before Patti Smith would begins putting her poems to music.

She was also the inspiration for the titular character in the cult classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

There’s really no other woman more deserving of the title “mother of punk rock.”
