Shea Diamond: Fighting for the Airwaves

Shea Diamond talks about the message behind her songs and the disbelief she still feels about working in the music industry. "I still think it's a joke," she says. "I don't feel like we're respected as human beings, so how can we be respected in our art." She describes what it was like to grow up queer and trans in the south, running away from home at 14, how being incarcerated for 10 years affects her still today, and why, despite the way people have always responded to her singing, she doesn't think her voice is special.
