Please spare a few moments quiet contemplation for all those of my trans sisters and brothers who can’t be here today.

Antony & The Johnsons – Bird Gehrl

I am a bird girl now

I’ve got my heart

Here in my hands now

I’ve been searching

For my wings some time

I’m gonna be born

Into soon the sky

‘Cause I’m a bird girl

And the bird girls go to heaven

I’m a bird girl

And the bird girls can fly

Bird girls can fly
