Kim Petras held back tears as she accepted the award for Best Pop Duo alongside Sam Smith, at the 2023 Grammy Awards, for the song “Unholy.” She is the first transgender woman to win the category.
The German pop star gave an emotional speech accepting her first Grammy Award, dedicating her win to trans artists who came before her. “I want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight,” Kim said.
She also dedicated her win to her mother, thanking her for supporting Kim's transition. “I grew up next to a highway in nowhere Germany, and my mother believed me that I was a girl. I wouldn’t be here without her and her support,” she said.
Congratulations Kim and Sam!!!
