Kayhar, Transgender Woman, Performs Duet With Pre-Transition Self

In late September, The Huffington Post brought you an incredible video that chronicled the journey and transition of a transgender woman named Kayhar.

This week Kayhar released another striking video in which she performs a duet with her pre-transition self.

"Progress for the trans community has been painfully slow," said Kayhar in a statement to The Huffington Post. "Despite some minor advances, society still sees us as only one of two things: sex objects or punch lines. Through my music, I hope to change that. Now is the time for a trans revolution. We're more than what the media and society has portrayed us to be and the time has come to correct those wrongs."

Check out Kayhar's unique cover of "Battlefield," originally performed by Jordin Sparks, above. For more information about the artist, visit her YouTube page.
