Wednesday, Wild Pink, Ratboys, and More Contribute to Transgender Charity Compilation

    The FADER has announced FADER and Friends Vol. 1, a 44-song covers compilation benefitting trans rights organizations. Wednesday, Wild Pink, Ratboys, Joanna Sternberg, Rostam, Model/Actriz, Fire-Toolz, Slow Pulp, Lala Lala, PACKS, Ducks Ltd., Madeline Kenney, Shalom, Babehoven, Miss Grit, and more have contributed to the album, which will be available for sale exclusively on Bandcamp for a month. Profits will be donated evenly between the Transgender Law Center (USA), Mermaids (UK), and the Rainbow Railroad (Canada). Check it out below.

    “The rationale for the compilation is simple: to push back against a new moral panic that has overrun the western world,” a press release explains. “States across the USA are passing a wide range of legislation targeting transgender youth and adults, blocking their access to procedures and medicines that affirm gender identity, and libeling the community as a threat to the physical safety of children. Politicians in the United Kingdom are following suit, and Canada is far from immune. This poisonous rhetoric has translated into an epidemic of violence against the trans community that shows no signs of going away on its own. The war against trans people is not a metaphorical one; we need to loudly affirm which side we’re on.”
