I am a transgender man who, due to hormone therapy, am trying to find my way back to my voice.
This video is a true "once in a lifetime" experience. I am singing a duett with myself where one voice is recorded my first day on testosterone treatment (16th of May 2016) and the second voice 9 months later (16th of February 2017).
The song is a tribute to the trans* community, but also to myself. It is a reminder that things actually do get better.
Vocals: Charlie Peck

This idea came to life with the help of my extremely talented friend André Åhl Persson.

As a sidenote: In the video I refer to myself with my previous name. I do this because I personally feel comfortable with this. Generally never refer to a trans* person with their "dead name".
My way to transition is also just that - My way. There are so many ways to feel comfortable in your own body and no way is more right than the other. Go your own way.
