Peppermint released a powerful new video today, on Transgender Day of Remembrance, entitled “But…I Survived” to honor and memorialize the trans individuals whose lives were lost, especially this past year. The video features Sia’s “Alive.”
“This creative project addresses the reality of the present, which deals with a painful past, and looks to a more hopeful future,” she said.
The video was directed and choreographed by John Alix, and the dancers featured in the video are: Allie Meixner, Chris Medlin (Diana, Mean Girls), Gabriel Hyman, Paul HeeSang Miller, Rosie Lani Fiedelman, Mary-Angela Granberry, Michelle West, MiMi Scardulla, Phil Colgan, and Paul Romero, Jr.
