Russom will be her own first and last name, but wants to be with ‘them’ will be addressed. That tells them Thursday in an interview with Pitchfork.

The musician says that she is often “not male and not female dress, but something in between.” Because of this, she has in the past suffered a lot of violence and intimidation. “But the world has since changed and that makes me hopeful. I always thought that I good found that I wasn’t really a man and not really a woman, but something in between.”

Russom decided to take some time for the transition, and himself. “I noticed that there was a person in me that I always ignored that and called out” hey, give me attention!’ I think it’s a shame that I was that person never paid attention, but it is also good that I have 42 years I have questioned my identity. It gave me good insights and experiences.”


“There will probably be people who have never transgender people have had or prejudices about,” says Russom. “I hope that my story can tell by the music.”
