When it comes to dating, Mila Jam has no time for men who are living in an alternate universe.
The trans artist and singer, who has been called the “trans icon we all need” and a “force of nature,” recently dropped a new music video, “Twilight Zone,” an ode to the men who gaslight women, especially transgender women, with their own backwards ideas.
At several points in the video, Jam sings while DMs and texts from men are projected behind her. Some of the DMs include men saying they’re “not interested” in dating someone who is trans or saying that a transgender woman “fooled” them in some way.
“Dating is like living in the twilight zone,” Jam said in a statement. “You constantly feel like you’re in an alternate universe. I wrote this song to highlight how guys make ladies (especially trans women) out to be crazy, when many of us are just keeping it 100 while they’re in another world.”
The video also stars trans models Isis King and Arisce Wanzer as well as infectious, high-energy choreography.
Mila Jam previously released the much-acclaimed song and video for “Faces,” on Transgender Day of Visibility. The video features trans actresses Laverne Cox, Peppermint, and Candis Cayne as well as LGBTQ+ stars like Tituss Burgess.
