LCD Soundsystem's Gavin Russom Comes Out as Transgender

Gavin Russom, a musician in the band LCD Soundsystem, has come out as transgender.

“Over the last year and a half, I went from my trans identity being something I was in touch with and worked through in one way or another, to suddenly this shift where it’s on the front burner. Now it’s time to become a whole person,” Gavin told Pitchfork in a new interview.

Gavin will be keeping her name and will perform live for the first time as an out transgender woman on July 13.

“I would dress gender nonconforming and quite often explicitly feminine, and I would talk to people that I felt a closeness to about what I was going through,” Gavin said. “I experienced a lot of violence and harassment. That was part of my daily experience. Sometimes, if they happened to be walking behind me at enough distance where they would read me as feminine, they would catcall me. Getting closer to me, they would see me as masculine and then become very angry. I was assaulted on a number of occasions.”
