by Glass Beach
Calico is a comforting song for any gender non-conforming people. The singer is comforting a male calico cat, who is unusual, and in a way, gender non-conforming! With the lyrics “Calico, don’t go” and “you’re not gonna leave him alone” the singer comforts the listener and reminds them that there are people out there that care about them and want to protect them.

Notes from Team Members:
This is my go-to song when that silly goofy gender dysphoria is crushing me like a hydraulic press! It’s kept me from the edge countless times.
Fun fact: 99.9% of calico cats are female, which is what makes the existence of male calicos feel gender non-conforming!
