Hey Piera! What a great track – what was the inspiration behind ‘Love Is Meant For You’?
Time to confess those feelings ahhhh! I wrote this track for you to finally confess your love to your crush, your friend, or someone you thought you could never have. I know it’s freakin’ scary but it’s worth the risk! It’s a universal love song and when you don’t have the words, you can send it to the one you love most. This could also be your lover, partner, wife, or husband. Summer 2021 is the time to show who your love is really meant for, especially after these crazy times, don’t you think! 😉
How did your coming out (to yourself and to others) affect your songwriting?
It made me want to become even more inclusive of every type of love and celebrate that love is love is love. Honestly it’s hard as everyday you have to come out. You think will this person change the way they think about me or think less of me? Will they be happy for me? But all I care about is putting my love out there and music is my favorite way to send that message. Now you’re seeing my soppy cancerian heart!!
You’ve done so much activism and charitable work! How did that first come about?
From a young age I’ve always wanted to put others first, and I definitely took that quite literally. But don’t worry, I am managing to prioritize self care too! 🙂 I just want to help others, and if my work, my wee song or film can help bring attention to those that need it – I feel empowered. I’m passionate about Gender Equality and Climate Change.
What little bits of activism should we all be practicing in our daily lives?
Understand the causes you want to stand behind and start your research! Anyone can bring anything to the table to help a cause! It could be a donation, buying a pin, or living your life in such a way to educate yourself and to activate others.
What are your hopes for the LGBTQ+ community in the coming years?
We must all work to protect our transgender community, and our LGBTQ+ youth. The protection of the LGBTQ community is essential! The equality act was put into motion in the UK in 2010, but now we need the equality act in the USA to be passed! We have the right to be protected in the workplace against discrimination of all kinds.
What do you hope to achieve, personally, in 2021?
Spend more time with the people that I love 🙂
‘Love Is Meant For You’ is out now.
