I want to be clear — I know that I wasn’t excluded from the performance directly because I am transgendered. I was not invited to perform because I am relatively unknown in the U.S., singing a song about ecocide, and that might not sell advertising space. It is not me that is picking the performers for the night, and I know that I don't have an automatic right to be asked.
But if you trace the trail of breadcrumbs, the deeper truth of it is impossible to ignore. Like global warming, it is not one isolated event, but a series of events that occur over years to create a system that has sought to undermine me, at first as a feminine child, and later as an androgynous transwoman. It is a system of social oppression and diminished opportunities for transpeople that has been employed by capitalism in the US to crush our dreams and our collective spirit.
- A concert film documentary captured during the critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and the Johnsons and Charles Atlas during the fall of 2006, it explores the heart and experience of that series of performances. Through its synthesis of Antony’s songs and Atlas' unfurling video portraiture of the 13 women who performed on stage, TURNING is an intimate and cinematic journey exploring themes of identity, transcendence, and the revelation of a revolutionary feminine essence.
TURNING saw its theatrical release from fall 2011-summer 2012, premiering at festivals, including Meltdown in London, The Melbourne Festival in Melbourne, DOC NYC in New York and CPH:DOX in Copenhagen, amongst others. Secretly Canadian and Rough Trade will now co-release a deluxe edition of the TURNING dvd to coincide with select tv screenings around the world. This will include a cd of the complete audio recording of the TURNING concert, live at The Barbican in London in November 2006. The concert contains songs from the first three Antony and the Johnsons’ full length albums – Antony and the Johnsons, I Am A Bird Now, and The Crying Light, as performed by an ensemble of musicians including Maxim Moston, Rob Moose, Julia Kent, Parker Kindred, Jeff Langston and Thomas Bartlett. The cd will also feature two rare Antony and the Johnsons studio recordings from that period.
TURNING is available on DVD+CD and digitally on November 11th in North America via Secretly Canadian and November 10th in the UK and Europe on Rough Trade. Pre-order is available at the following outlets:

"Today I am among a group of artists from NYC (some of whom are performing at this Meltdown Festival) who reject patriarchy in its myriad virulent and apocalyptic manifestations, and who advocate for a fundamental shift towards the feminine in all our systems and structures of governance. We have named this approach Future Feminism."
