Another time around the block capturing cool pictures. The photos were taken by my mama and Claire. Last time we were kind of erotic, this time it’s kind of like we’re a young couple— here, queer and rather fierce (if i do say so myself). 

For of her rad ways you can go to:

Contemporary Art Week!

I love the Rococo aesthetic explored in this photoset.



I do feel there is a preoccupation with that. The preoccupation with transition and surgery objectifies trans people. And then we don’t get to really deal with the real lived experiences. The reality of trans peoples’ lives is that so often we are targets of violence. We experience discrimination disproportionately to the rest of the community. Our unemployment rate is twice the national average; if you are a trans person of color, that rate is four times the national average. The homicide rate is highest among trans women. If we focus on transition, we don’t actually get to talk about those things… By focusing on bodies we don’t focus on the lived realities of that oppression and that discrimination.
