We want to thank everyone who participated in today’s fundraiser for the Transgender Law Center. Bandcamp’s community of artists, fans, and labels once again stood with us to enthusiastically voice a commitment to equal rights for all, and oppose the marginalization of the LGBT+ community.

We also would like to thank NPR, Spin, Pitchfork, Metal Sucks, AVClub, Billboard, Invisible Oranges, Noisey, Fast Company, Newsweek, Forbes, TLC itself, and Cyndi Lauper for spreading the word about the fundraiser, and helping to raise awareness about this issue.We did hear from a few individuals who suggested that we “stay neutral” and “just sell music.” To those people we say this: an attack against any marginalized community is an attack against all of us. We believe we have a moral obligation to oppose such attacks, and we will always happily embrace the amazing opportunity we have to rally others to do the same.
