“Portrait of a Girl” by Amy Alley
If you’ve experienced gender dysphoria or have ever felt not at home in your body, you’ll relate to “Portrait of a Girl”. With the tough political climate for trans youth and queer people in general, hearing this song was very comforting. It reminds me that we aren’t alone, and so many people across the country and world are experiencing similar feelings. I love the acoustic guitar and the addition of the upright bass. The overarching message of self-acceptance will help any listener feel more at ease. Check it out on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
