Ray BLK ft. SG Lewis - Chill Out

"Shadiamond is one of four transgender women—Mindy, Beyonka, and Sasha are the others—who appear in the 'Chill Out' video. They were chosen by a Jamaican producer to travel from the gritty capital city of Kingston, where they live, to the northeastern coastal parish of Portland for the two-day shoot. All four women are part of a population known in Jamaica as the Gully Queens, a small band of trans and gay young people who live embattled lives at the outermost margins of a country that Time magazine once called 'the most homophobic place on earth.' They are visibly, openly living the truth of their gender and sexual identity in a nation where many choose to stay closeted, and they pay for it with complete alienation and constant abuse."
