Elevating Black trans lives.
The Young Shits July brief asked us to elevate Black trans lives and help Black trans people feel seen. Sadly, Black trans people are often viewed as objects of disgust, and whenever they do gain attention, it's because of a tragedy. Black trans lives not only matter, they're sacred. I decided to highlight living Black trans artists, leaders, and activists in the style of saint-like portraits to deliver the message
We Are Sacred.
