Been in my feels after this was dedicated last Wednesday. This was such an incredible project to be a part of. I’m so honored to have partnered with @rhdmorrishome to memorialize these beautiful local Black trans women, celebrate their lives, and the lives of others departed from our trans & gender nonconforming community.
I hope that this mural also speaks to love, and joy, and pride, and the present moment, and the future, and feels celebratory … all at once. Thank you to @alokvmenon for allowing us to draw inspiration from their words. 💓
