Last year, Liturgy broke their four-year silence with the very good new album H.A.Q.Q., and today, band leader Hunter Hunt-Hendrix has come out as transgender. She wrote in part, "I am a woman. I've always been one. The love I have to give is a woman's love, if only because it is mine. To varying degrees many already understand this, but I'd like to make a clear statement about my actual gender. I could have done this before Liturgy started, but I didn't, out of fear. I knew I was female and not male, emotionally and in my experience of my body. But I was afraid - of social rejection, romantic rejection, career rejection, rejection by my family, failure."
