Artistic Expression and Trans Women of Color
From art to dance to documentary, this section focuses on artistic expression. Linking together upcoming artists and well established celebrities, this collection seeks to understand trans women’s influences on pop culture from both within the United States and from an international lens. The sources here range from playful to sobering–encompassing an array of emotional intensities meant to capture the full humanity of trans women as a group. While many of the works presented have themes of trauma, social ostracization, and oppression, this collection also seeks to showcase the vibrancy, innovativeness, and creativity present among trans women of color and trans cultures.
