Half of the song’s proceeds will be donated to the organization which will give members of the trans and nonbinary communities access to their official telehealth partners Folx and Plume and toward purchasing gender-affirming shapewear from trans-owned companies including gc2bOrigami Customs and urBasics. The remaining 50 percent of proceeds will go to the trans musicians involved, Cuee and Dante Foley.
