Awesome Trans Women of History

Did you know about this quality woman? I bet you didn't!

Wendy Carlos

This is Wendy Carlos, a 74-year-old trans woman who basically invented electronic dance music by popularizing the use of synthesizers in her album Switched On Bach. She won three Grammys for it and was #1 on the billboard chart for pop music for 17 weeks. She did the soundtracks for the original Tron, A Clockwork Orange, and The Shining.

This woman is a musical genius. Bask in her awesomeness.

I found all this information on this Tumblr post, but the link back to the original post redirects to a blog home page. Just know that I found all this information thanks to this person.
