Fresh of her stellar performance at the New York City Pride March last month, trans singer/songwriter Dina Delicious has just released her new single Reverse The Beat. The usually super sweet and upbeat nightlife icon penned the song at a low point in her life when she was struggling with emotional demons.”I was in a dark place trying to figure out the purpose of my existence and if the world would be a better place if I just gave up and gave in,” says Dina. As an activist, fighting for transgender rights to proper healthcare, housing, education, and an end to discrimination, this song is just one of the ways she’s showing the world that the struggle ‘Ain’t over! We ain’t finished, not even close, just the beginning’. Watch the lyric video below…and get Reverse The Beat, out now on iTunes!
“I have always fought life’s struggles with a smile and a sunny attitude. Throughout my life, I have had experiences of feeling lost and frustrated. As a young kid in Brooklyn, I was teased mercilessly, beaten and bullied. I never fit in and the trauma from being isolated and alone still haunts me. I think it does for anyone that has been perceived as different. There is always that lump in your throat when you just want to scream and escape, but to where? I could have written a gloomy, sad song but I chose to go the other way with an empowering dance/pop anthem that will make listeners feel good and inspire them to thrive.”
