Black Metal Band Liturgy’s Lead Singer Hunter Hunt-Hendrix Comes Out As Trans: “I Am A Woman”

Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, lead singer of the black metal band Liturgy has come out as trans. “I am a woman,” she writes in a statement posted on her and the band's social media platforms. “I’ve always been one. The love I have to give is a woman’s love, if only because it is mine. To varying degrees many already understand this, but I’d like to make a clear statement about my actual gender.”

As ‘Pitchfork’ reports, Hunt-Hendrix explains that although she has known of her womanhood for a very long time, she kept quiet out of fear. 

“The music and ideas I compose come from a female heart, whatever that means, and I don’t want to partially distort the transmission through an ‘effeminate male’ mask any longer.... This statement is essentially making itself. I have no choice, there is no way for me to stop it from coming out, I am simply surrendering to it.” 

Hunt-Hendrix concluded her post by telling fans that she’s “free from some kind of compromise I felt I needed to accept, without being fully conscious of what I was doing or able to seriously imagine an alternative for myself.

“It has been very emotional, and it’s over now, so I am punctuating it.”
