Video: Emmet Michael – God Shaped Hole

Emmet Michael is a Canadian singer songwriter whose new track God Shaped Hole simply took my breath away.

By Graeme Smith

The track explores the difficulties that come from being trans and Christian and the conflict that comes from wanting to be who you are while others attempt to invalidate you based on their faith. It’s a story told in an articulate and poetic way, coming to life with religious imagery. Emmet’s delivery is full of passion and vulnerability.

The video features a host of trans people, each holding their own message, interspersed with emotional performance from Emmet. Check it out below but, be warned, it’s a real tearjerker.
