Femme Filter #WCW: Kim Petras
With her energetic sound and colorful aesthetic to match, Petras is capturing the hearts of pop music lovers everywhere, but especially in the LGBTQ+ community, of which she is a part of.
Petras is transgender, and while she’s proud and outspoken of being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, she says that it’s not all she wants to be known for. As she expresses in her interview with HuffPost:
“I just hate the idea of using my identity as a tool… It made me the person I am… but I think music is about your feelings and your fantasies and it goes deeper than your gender or your sexuality.”
From her sound to her image, this German-born vocalist steps into the role of the next pop superstar with ease and creates the unapologetically upbeat music you never knew you needed; and that’s why Kim Petras is Femme Filter’s #womxncrushwednesday.
