The #Stronger videos I created for Dr. micha cárdenas’ Poetic Operations Collaborative are showing in the exhibition “Future Love: Desire and Kinship in Hypernature” at the House of Electronic Culture in Basel Switzerland. The group exhibition, which opened January 18, 2018, examines the impact of new technologies and social media on our affective relationships and sexuality.
On December 14, 2017, I was presented the 2017 Survival Guide Award at the Gender Justice Awards. Each year, Gender Justice League, an advocacy group for transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals in Washington state, awards community members who have gone above and beyond in their creativity and impact in creating change. I was chosen to receive the 2017 Survival Guide Award for my work on the 2017 King County Trans Resource & Referral Guide and my cultural commentary on activism ethics and practices.
I’m honored to be included in the first ever Bitch 50, a list which “recognizes the most impactful creators, artists, and activists in pop culture whose imaginations extend beyond normalizing and affirming the same mainstream messages.” The list includes powerhouses such as Colin Kaepernick, Chelsea Manning, Carrie Ann Lucas, Janet Mock, Jordan Peele and more. Thanks bitchmedia!
