Hunter Hunt-Hendrix the vocalist of US black metal group ‘Liturgy’ has recently announced that she is a transgender. Puza Snigdha brings you the latest.
The singer posted a video online where she publicly came out as a transgender, in the video, she said: “I am a woman. I’ve always been one. The love I have to give is a woman’s love, if only because it is mine. To varying degrees, many already understand this, but I’d like to make a clear statement about my actual gender. I could have done this before Liturgy started, but I didn’t, out of fear. I knew I was female and not male, emotionally and in my experience of my body. But I was afraid – of social rejection, romantic rejection, career rejection, rejection by my family, failure,” Hendrix posted on the band’s social media channels.
Hunt-Hendrix confessed that she knew she was a woman before starting Liturgy, but did not come out as transgender due to fear of rejection from others.
She said: “The music and ideas I compose come from a female heart, whatever that means, and I don’t want to partially distort the transmission through an ‘effeminate male’ mask any longer,”
The band Liturgy founded in New York in 2005. Their latest album came in last November.
