Mila Jam: Musician, Activist, Icon.

SoStereo strives to connect reputable brands with real, authentic artists. That is why we are so proud to have had the opportunity to place music by Mila Jam, popstar, and LGBTQ+ advocate, with timeless fashion brand, Ralph Lauren.

Ralph Lauren has helped the Stonewall Community Foundation fund vital LGBTQ+ nonprofits, invest in POC-led nonprofits across the US, and put actual cash in the hands of struggling LGBT+ individuals.

This year, they continued this partnership and chose Mila Jam’s ‘Faces’ as the track playing in their Our Pride Story. The song plays as the history of Ralph Lauren’s involvement with, and support of the LGBTQ+ community is told via a series of empowering images of activism throughout the years.

Who is Mila Jam?

Mila Jam, an American transgender singer/songwriter, dancer, and LGBTQ+ activist. She is the ultimate creative multi-threat. Mila studied at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC. Her musical and performance career launched on Youtube not long after, and she later joined the Broadway cast of “Rent,” which toured internationally.
