The singer on coming out, making music and being a cool gay aunt
INTERVIEW BY CAIT FINDLAY, IMAGE BY CALLUM WALKER HUTCHINSON
Five years ago Gia Woods came out to the entire world, including her conservative parents, with her hit single Only A Girl. We’ve been big fans ever since so we’re thrilled to have an exclusive interview with Gia in our August issue. Here’s a cheeky taster.
Being a Persian, lesbian artist
“I feel like I’m the representation I never had growing up.”
Why LA is “heartbreak central”
“People come here to follow their dreams and they think that they’re going to make it big. I’ve just seen all of the ups and downs because I was born and raised here.”
Finding the courage to perform
“A switch just flipped. Now, when I’m on stage, I think, ‘whoever is in the audience is going to experience this one moment, this one time, so what do I want them to feel?'”
PLUS Gia opens up about her relationship with her mum
