Musician Ezra Furman announces she’s a trans woman

Hot Hot Musician on New York scene, Ezra Furman has been creating critical hits for over a decade with her band Ezra and the Harpoons.  Now she’s making waves as a woman and mom!

“I wanted to share with everyone that I am a trans woman, and also that I am a mom and have been for a while now (like 2+ years),” she wrote. “About being a trans woman: for my own reasons I have been hesitant to use these words, especially the ‘woman’ word. I have often described myself as non-binary, which maybe is still true (I’m just gonna sit with that question for the moment).”

Furman, 34, explained that coming to terms with her identity was “complex” but added it’s “complex to be any sort of woman.”

“I am very proud to be a trans woman and to have come to know it and be able to say it,” she wrote. “This has not been an easy journey.”

Furman also described the “magic of parenthood,” calling her experience “beautiful and holy.”
