Black Trans Lives Matter

Black Trans Lives Matter - student project

I was excited to take this class ever since Danielle first announced it on Instagram. It’s so motivating having this opportunity learn from a talented creator whose art, style, voice and advocacy I admire!

For my project, I decided to illustrate a powerful quote from “Radical Belonging” by Lindo Bacon. It speaks to the importance of recognizing the value of our fellow humans whose bodies are deemed less worthy of care and protection under oppressive social systems, in this case racism and transphobia.
