Announcing Presence Not Absence – A Benefit Compilation for Trans BIPOC Housing Assistance
Under Trump’s administration, fair housing has been denied for the trans community in this country, and now the administration is looking to deny the trans community access to homeless shelters. This is another in a long list of hateful, vile actions by this administration, and in an effort to help, Volar Records has gathered tracks from various artists, some previously released, some not, some recorded specifically for this compilation. Cassette out late September. Thank you Look at Us Zine for introducing me to some stellar queer & trans BIPOC artists who were willing to lend some music.
All proceeds of the compilation will be donated between San Diego Black Queer Housing House of Resilience & APAIT’s Casa de Zulma Bridge Housing Assistance Program.
Artists include The Uhuruverse, D. Wrex, Eddington Again, Cody Blanchard of Shannon and the Clams, VAGUESS, COED, Ingonoir, ALE MANIA, Blue Zero, Teach Me, Uno Lady, Slaughterhouse, Cat Scan, No No Baby, Susan, Dove Armitage, Tolliver, Public Interest and The Passengers.
