Over 200 Record Labels and Artists Join Bandcamp in Donating Today's Profits to Transgender Law Center


Today, music streaming platform Bandcamp will donate 100% of their profits to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting for change in laws and policies that discriminate against transgender and gender nonconforming people. Bandcamp is joined by over 200 record labels and artists who will also donate all profits made today to the TLC.

Some artists and record labels have uploaded unreleased music to the website as a result. This includes the release of "Joy Boy" by Julius Eastman from Frozen Reeds. The song was performed live at the same concert that featured "Femenine". Sarah Hennies has also released "Knees", a composition that utilizes empty beer kegs and a vibraphone. Jason Lescalleet has uploaded the aptly titled August 4th to the Glistening Examples page. As a note, this EP will only be up for today. And Liz Harris aka Grouper has also released "Children", a song that was written during the same sessions that produced Ruins.

You can view a complete list of all participating artists and record labels here. This benefit ends at midnight, pacific time.
