Los Angeles, CA – 2021 -  Peppermint - the trailblazing actress, singer, reality star, and activist who continues to defy limitations released the official music video HERE of her first single, "Best Sex" in fall 2020 with the track being lauded with a "Best Songwriter" award for Peppermint & Adam Joseph by World of Wonder's Wowie Awards and also garnering a 2021 GLAAD Media Award nomination for  Outstanding Music Artist alongside Miley Cyrus, Adam Lambert & Lady Gaga.  Logo's New Now Next spotlighted the video HERE with Peppermint saying -""Best Sex" - a song for and about the fuqbois and my addiction to them. "As much as I hate to admit it,the best distraction from the search for love is good sex.""

"Best Sex" is the lead track from her latest album, A Girl Like Me: Letters To My Lovers  HERE via PEG Records/Warner Music Group/ADA. A Girl Like Me: Letters To My Lovers is the first in a trilogy of album releases about the three stages of Peppermint's most recent relationship with Entertainment Tonight giving an exclusive first look of Behind The Scenes/In The Studio footage HERE

The album Trilogy took over a year to complete and focuses on Peppermint's personal diary set to music with Volume 1 tackling the subjects of flirtation, lust and love. The new album is available here:  https://lnk.to/LettersToMyLovers 

In addition, Peppermint's  brand new music video for "Every Morning"  HERE is out now.  New Now Next premiered the video HERE which features a cameo and guest vocals by actor/model Laith Ashley.  ""This song is a fantasy against the back drop that 2020 was the deadliest year on record for trans women and most murders are committed by our boyfriends and lovers who are ashamed of us. Many trans people have to overcome a lot of personal and social obstacles just to survive. Discrimination, violence can stand in the way of leading a healthy and productive life. "Every Morning" is the opposite of that. This video depicts a couple in the throws of love and romance and a partnership where the leading man adores his partner rather than being ashamed of her...which again is the norm for many.  The video features renowned recording artist and actor Laith Ashley" says Peppermint. 

A Girl Like Me: Letters To My Lovers also features a gorgeous cover of the Carole King classic, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow." View the video HERE  "Obviously, I'm a Carole King fan. I love the lyrics, which I think are incredibly relatable in queer relationships and encounters as well as casual moments that may or may not turn into something more. The possibility of a relationship is usually inhibited by social stigma and fear of being seen in public with a trans woman." says Peppermint.

Peppermint – “A Girl Like Me – Letters To My Lovers” Song Commentary

Photo credit: Carl Giant
Click image for high res download

Vol  1:

  • Best Sex” - A song for and about the fuqbois and my addiction to them.

"As much as I hate to admit it, the best distraction from the search for love is good sex."

  • Chosen One” - Celebrates the feeling of being publicly claimed.

"I can't keep track of the people who have made private advances, but I can count on one hand how many have wanted to hold me up in public. When you least expect it, in a dating world where being trans feels like a liability, the best feeling is being publicly claimed."

  • A Girl Like Me” - The most important song on the album. It's a love song that speaks directly to trans experiences.

It’s about the love between a transgender person and their partner and asks the question; do you see me, do you hear me, do you love me? I think it's just human to want to love and be loved. Girls like me rarely get to realize those dreams and who instead are just trying to be accepted."

  • Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” - Thoughts that run through my head after the first night of sex, before the sun comes up.

"I'm a big fan of Carole King, I've lived in the lyrics so many nights. I think we can all relate to the question 'is this real?'."

  • Every Morning” - A fairy tale love song about how a great first night can turn into many great mornings.

"This song is like my musical dollhouse. Where two lovers can just love in all their queerness."
