The new video

We received a very interesting and thought-provoking email today regarding the new video for "Winner": "Thank You to the Boys for their Winner Video which so positively showed the Transgender Community who has been much maligned and battle worn for so long. Many in the Trans community have been buoyed and even moved to tears by the theme of the video. The transgender community has faced great sorrow and pain in our daily lives just trying to be accepted and 'fit in" because we look different, many are forced to "Go Stealth" and disappear and hope no one ever finds out because being uncovered can mean the loss of family, friends, a job, a home, and even one's life. Please pass along if you can, this anonymous 'Thank You.' to all involved in the production."
