Artistic Legacies: Black Trans Femmes in the Arts

Black trans femmes have historically been the first to stand up for LGBTQ+ and women’s rights—and the targets of both anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-Black violence. At TransLash, we want to give our Black trans femme siblings their flowers every day. Artistic Legacies: Black Trans Femmes in the Arts is one way for us to do that—by telling their full, glorious stories and highlighting their indelible impact on the way we understand art.

Black Trans Femmes in the Arts: ‘Artistic Legacies’ Screening Q&A – REPLAY

Watch TransLash Media’s Q&A with BTFA Collective members at the ‘Artistic Legacies’ docuseries screening in 2023.

“I wasn’t going to back down. I wasn’t going to change who I was for anybody. When I got to ballroom, just seeing people that are unapologetic and just living in their truth and being happy, I wanted that.”
