Femme Filter #WCW: Kim Petras


“Bubblegum pop princess” and “glittery pop prodigy” are just two of many complimentary titles given to pop artist Kim Petras by the likes of publications such as TheDailyBeast and Noisey.

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.
