“Lorraine” is the powerful must-see music video from LGBTQ hip hop artist Fly Young Red about the dangers facing the trans community. He writes:
There is a need for a story like this to be told in our community.
Lorraine essentially is all transgender women. I wrote this song a few years ago and I just recorded the video this year because my friend Chyna Gibson was murdered this year in February. She was the dancing doll that was shot 10 times in New Orleams. She along with other trans women have been violently and senselessly taken from us and it seems like after the hash tags and a few news clips they are forgotten.
I wrote a story about a trans woman I called her Lorraine based New Orleans French quarter. How she went from a feminine boy doing drag, into a trans women, got into escorting and her eventual demise. I wanted it to be cautionary tale for the younger generation of trans women coming of age. How easy it can be to get thrown off track in this life style. I shot the video and between 3 Facebook users it has over a million views. Please watch.
I urge to take a moment to watch and share the video, below.
