“I'm so proud of this music. I'm happy 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.
While Jujubee said, “Excitement doesn’t even begin to express what I feel about this tour with Peppermint! I can’t wait for everyone to experience a different facet of our shine. It will be the first time I get to perform my original music with a live band — this live concert tour is going to be pure magic!”
