“I'm so proud of this music. I'm proud that I was able to create something that comes directly from the heart and speaks to our community and the issues that affect us, transgender people deserve to experience love and have our story's told publicly. I work hard to create music that would have made the ten-year-old me proud. I'm so excited to get on the road and meet all of my supporters and tell the Stories Behind The Music! This tour is going to be unlike anything I've ever done before!” Love, Peppermint.
