A rapper, singer, songwriter and producer, jez.who makes music from their Black, queer and trans experience. This weekend they’ll perform new single ‘Brooklyn, Go Hard’ at TransMasculine Summer, a song with a message that amplifies the perspective of a nonbinary person navigating disrespect in public.
“In ‘Brooklyn, Go Hard’, I’m saying I want to be every cis straight man’s nightmare. It’s less of a clapback, it’s more about - you would be ashamed to hear your own thoughts about me come out of my mouth back to you.
My transmasculine siblings are an underrepresented group, and I found this to be the perfect song to perform because it speaks to a familiar experience. The audience will know what its like to preyed on in public by cis men and people in general.”
jez.who (ze/they) is a transgender and non-binary multidisciplinary artist from Brooklyn, New York. Formally trained in musical theatre, cabaret performance and classical voice, their self-produced music displays a reverence for House, Hip-Hop, and Jazz. Today, jez. resides in Long Beach, where they create spaces and art around the black queer experience.
