Bandcamp for Transgender Rights

On July 26, the President of the United States tweeted that transgender individuals would be banned from serving in the military. Like many of my friends and family members, I was appalled by this news, but not at all surprised. The President was elected on a platform of bigotry and cruelty. His words and actions are not only hurtful, but an affront to the dream of an America that lives up to its stated principles of equality and egalitarianism.

Today I learned that this Friday, August 4, Bandcamp will donate its share of sales revenues to the Transgender Law Center. In response, Centagon Records will do the same. You may read Bandcamp's announcement here:

My vision for Centagon is to create a label that is inclusive toward human beings of all identities, especially those who are marginalized. In order to accomplish that, I understand that words are not enough. I applaud Bandcamp's leadership in taking a stand against oppression, and I'm proud to do business with them.

Terror Wave by Air Jackson is available on vinyl and digital via Bandcamp. You may find it here:

Thanks for listening.
