Pride Entertainers - Wynter Gordon

Wynter Gordon
7:30 pm, Friday, June 3rd
With an ethereal voice and playful personality, singer-songwriter Wynter Gordon is giving dance-floor divas and music heads alike a new reason to believe. The single �Dirty Talk� from her forthcoming debut album, With the Music I Die, has already topped Billboard�s Dance Club Play Songs chart at No. 1, while her �Believer� also climbs steadily on the U.K. charts..

For the last two years, Gordon has traveled the globe, collaborating with some of the biggest names in electronic music. These incredible experiences have gone into the making of her debut. As Gordon explains, �I�m not the same girl anymore. I�m more confident. I�m more me.� Her songs reflect this new self-confidence � she and her collaborators have given themselves license to play, reveling in a new sound that is a blend of European house, bold beats, and purely emotive songwriting. �I feel so comfortable with myself now. I�m really in that place where I�ve just let go.�

�Believer� has a deep message at its heart, explains Gordon, �but it�s still dance music. I think that�s what was missing in dance. There was no real emotion or personality to it, and that�s what I bring.� Even her single �Dirty Talk� has a sincere sense of fantasy, revealing a young woman experimenting with different sides of herself.

Life these days is a living fantasy. Gordon says that she fell in love with �the energy in Europe. I picked up a little of the culture from everywhere I�ve been.� For a girl from South Jamaica, Queens, who was raised in a two-room house with �my mother and six brothers and sisters,� she�s aware of how far she has come.

After high school, when most of her peers were off to college, Gordon threw herself fully into realizing her music dreams. She juggled several jobs while working in the studio at night. It was some time before she landed her first big break: writing �The Breakthrough� for Mary J. Blige. The legendary singer was so moved by the song, she named her 2005 album after it, a vote of confidence that Gordon still remembers with awe. �My whole life, I�ve been the underdog, and it�s just magic.�

As she prepares to reveal With The Music I Die to the world, Gordon hopes that she moves people to �feel my artistry and feel that I�m a real person.� The songs document the incredible journey of one girl, both around the world and within herself, coming to a place of ultimate freedom, where trials and triumphs are released on the dance floor. The title, explains Gordon, is less about a death than it is about a rebirth. �Music lives on forever,� she says. �So I�ll always be around.�

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
