Electronic singer-songwriter and producer FLAVIA grew up in Ireland and Italy and has lived in just about every corner of the U.S. before landing in Los Angeles. In 2019, her colorful "Til I Die" video reached nearly a million views in its first month, and she was one of the Grand Prize winners in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition with her song "Expectations."
This Tuesday (March 31), she's releasing her latest single "Them" in support of Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), a day dedicated to celebrating the transgender community and raising awareness of the discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide.
FLAVIA tells Billboard the single "was inspired by a specific romance I had with a trans-masculine person, but the video's intentions were to visually illustrate an inclusive picture of the entire trans/gender non-conforming/non-binary community. As a cisgender female, it was important that I was sensitive not speak for a community that I myself am not a part of, but rather my goal was to elevate the voices of the trans community to let them shine and represent themselves."
