McLean has been giving his Instagram account to queer artists (including Silveira) for informative takeovers, and the music video for his new solo single “Love Song Love” stars a pair of trans actresses. Silveira, meanwhile, is the first trans male signed to a major label record contract, and his Fuse and OutTV series Shine True is all about helping trans and non-binary individuals discover their authentic selves.
So to celebrate Pride Month (as well as the 25th anniversary of Backstreet Boys’ self-titled international debut album), McLean and Silveira Zoomed together for our new artist-on-artist interview series, Peer 2 Peer.
In addition to their wide-ranging LGBTQA+ discussion, McLean and Silveira discuss sobriety, the music industry, breaking gender norms, and working on Backstreet Boys’ first-ever Christmas album (!). Watch it all above.
