SoundBytes: Shawna Virago Finds Hope in a “Heaven Sent Delinquent”

Catchy as hell, playful, clever, and full of positivity – “Heaven Sent Delinquent” is an anthem for the outsider, channeling the hate and push back of society into something bigger and better. Shawna Virago does it again with another catchy song that screams out against an oppressive society through positive vibes. I consider myself lucky to have been able to cover her for another site a few years ago and again today for The Farsighted. In fact, I feel a distinct pleasure to get to share her latest music video with you as today’s SoundByte.

Shawn has been a pioneer for trans rights and LGBTQ rights at large. One of the first out trans performers touring in the music scene, she paved the way for countless others after her and continues to push boundaries. As a published author, her work on gender, love, and relationships is well respected and cited around the world. As a film festival director, she also programs films that push limits and envelopes to create more space for LGBTQ people around the world. Her resume is nothing short of brilliant and her positive approach is infectious.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
