This morning I woke up to a TIME cover story about the trans movement being at a tipping point and seeing my dear friend and sister Laverne Cox on the cover. Such a major media moment for a trans woman of color to be visible and vocal in this way, helping spark multiple conversations about identity, about the intersection of race, class, gender and so much more. 

The cover story is not available online (you must purchase the magazine or get a digital subscription) but a behind-the-scenes video and Q&A with Laverne is.

British soul singer Sam Smith comes out as a gay man
Bradley Norman, Avid Sound Staff Writer

Sam Smith, the voice behind three #1 singles in the U.K., opened up about his sexuality and its influence over his LP in an interview with Fader magazine.

"I’ve never been in a relationship before," Smith said. "In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back.”

This marks the singer’s first time publicly speaking about his sexuality, which has been brought into question before, most recently, following the ambiguity of his music video for his newest single, “Leave Your Lover,” in which he finds himself trapped in a love triangle.

"I feel almost like I signed off this part of my life where I keep giving myself to guys who are never going to love me back," Smith said. "It’s all there now, and I can move on and hopefully find a guy who can love me the way I love him."

The Nirvana singer said his music is written intentionally ambiguous so it can appeal just about everyone.

"I’ve made my music so that it could be about anything and everybody— whether it’s a guy, a female or a goat—and everybody can relate to that," Smith said.

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter also discussed the pressure associated with fame, his difficulty breaking into the industry and why he makes music, which you can read about in his cover-story interview in the June/July 2014 issue of Fader.

You can also read the full interview here.

Smith’s debut album, ”In the Lonely Hour,” was released on May 26 in the UK and drops in the US on June 17 through Capitol Records. A review of his LP is scheduled to be posted sometime today.

Check out the premiere of the track “Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey, from the album of the same title during her Vancouver concert. The lyrics describe the same “ultraviolence” as Lana’s previous 2010 track - “Hundred Dollar Bill”. It also features the lyrics “He hit me and it felt like a kiss”, previously told by Lana.
