Saint Lou Lou – Maybe You

I ran across this song and video today and it touches me deeply. So beautiful and evocative.

The Guardian UK has written about the singing twins:

With its sleepy, minor chord synths and innate sense of longing for what could have been, Saint Lou Lou’s debut single feels like the perfect end-of-summer song. In fact, the disparity between the seasons and climates infuses everything about the music made by twins Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, the pair splitting their time between the crisp winters of Sweden and the balmy summers of Australia.

Serious Stuff. Swedish Trans People Forced to Undergo Sterilization

I was following this for a few days if I’m honest and didn’t post anything.  My reason? I assumed it was an archaic law that Sweden  would correct pronto. Apparently it still stands.   This is a revolting law that the Swedish Government should be ashamed to leave on the books and especially so because they are pandering to a fringe party.

We are all human and entitled to the same rights regardless of our race, gender identity, orientation, religious views or lack of them, appearance etc.  How does the Swedish government justify sterilization as a reasonable criterion for officially changing gender?  I don’t know but I am as sure as fuck they need to change that ridiculous law or else they will look as awful as nations that allow female genital circumcision.

Here is the face of what you are doing Sweden – and thanks to All Out for the link.

I signed the petition and you should too.

OMG, looking at a video from Sweden  from someone who got off  because he is a US  citizen. Proud of him for  making the video.

I love my Trans sisters and brothers. We all need to embrace the  ‘T’ in ‘LGBT”.
