No one is irrelevant. And no one can take away my voice”.

G Flip is back with new single ‘Waste Of Space’, a song for non-binary people like themself. “I’m releasing this song because I know that if I had this song as a kid, it would have changed my entire life”, they say. “I feel like my purpose on this earth is to educate the world on gender identity and be the non-binary role-model that I never had growing up”.
