Jon Ely Xiuming
Jon Ely Xiuming is a poet, third culture queer and multi-media artist who works conceptually around text, film, photography, and queer bodies and interactions.

This video is a poetic letter from a non-binary trans person of colour, as a reply when getting the first letter from the gender clinic.
Charlie Peck about the song: “The video is a true “once in a lifetime” experience. I am singing a duet with myself where one voice recorded their first day on testosterone treatment (16th of May 2016) and the second voice 9 months later (16th of February 2017). The song is a tribute to the trans* community, but also to myself. It is a reminder that things actually do get better.”
