“A Christmas song for 2SLGBTQ+ people whose families have rejected them. We’re doin’ alright!”

For all of you in this situation out there, here is an anthem that will warm the cockles of your heart: A powerful ‘this is what you’re missing out on’ message to those families, delivered through the achingly sweet vocals of Mira Martin-Gray and backed by Tago Mago (drums), Patrick Merner (double bass), Kurt Newman (pedal steel guitar), and Al Ray (clawhammer banjo).

While we listen we can easily imagine those people sitting around a table littered with the corpses of innocent creatures while the blue snowflakes fall outside. There is no joy, no conversation, their hearts are as hard as the ice forming on the roof. Meanwhile we have the sounds of joy and the emotion of love, we have Rumor Milk to lull us into a feeling of warm harmony. Lush!
