Hello everyone :) here’s my second installment of my current project ‘People Who Inspire Me’. . This is my friend Prishita ( @peloise_ ) we met for the first time at the Queer liberation march with @voices4ldn . Afterwards Prish became a main organiser with voices 4. She’s an absolute force of nature. She’s immeasurably kind, thoughtful and honestly a beacon of hope to me. Knowing Prish is an honour and being her friend means the world. So this one is for you @peloise_ thankyou for your unending support of the community, thankyou for stepping up in every way , thankyou for your love and kindness ❣️
Sometimes other people fill me with fear. Sometimes I feel it and I want to shrink. I want to just run away and hide. But I can't. I can't hide anymore. I wont hide anymore. And I'm never going back. The sun is kissing my face and I'm reminded that who I am is natural and I was always meant to be. . . . Dress by @squintclothing I've been looking at it for over a year and finally its mine :') This dress makes me feel like queer magic.
Today I want to announce my new series : ‘people who inspire me’ for the next few weeks I’m going to pay tribute to the people in my life who constantly provide faith and love. Each Piece will present a portrait and a quote from each person that has touched me. I feel like this project needs to happen so I hope you folx enjoy :) . First is my friend @andreadigiovanni . I first started following Andrea when I saw a video of them singing - I rewatched it four times and was arrested by their magical voice. Over time i started to listen to more than their singing voice. Andrea is even more than their music - they’re fiercely passionate about advocating for the LGBTQI+ community. As soon as we met I knew we would be friends. Andrea is so so funny, witty and just generally a wonderful person to be around. Follow Andrea to be graced by their light!
More than a search bar, more than an instagram account.
I will never forget my trip to New York. Thanks to @fagsigns I had the chance to have my art hung in a gallery :o I finally met my loves @ggggrimes @heyrooney !!! I never thought I would get to access a space like the beautiful @hellergallery let alone with some of my favourite artists! I never thought a doodle in my sketchbook could be made Into an object so beautiful ❤ The good news is that the exhibition will be moving to a new city soon! If you didn't catch it in New York, I believe its moving to Chicago next!
Folx my latest limited edition collab with my pal @sarahdayarts is running out fast! This project has been so wonderful to make. It's about friendship, love and tenderness. I'm so proud we made this! I'll pop a swipe up link in my story If you haven't picked up a pin set yet! 10% of my sales are going to the brilliant @lgbtiqoutside . #artistsofinstagram #nonbinary #nonbinaryartist #genderqueer #art #queer #queerillustrator #queerartist #queerswhomake #transgender #trans #transartist
To celebrate the release of my Euphoria to the UK, @skyatlanticuk have asked me to share a letter to my 17 year old self #euphoria #ad . When I think of 17 year old Wednesday I wish they had known that : . - being thin wont make you happy - giving up your dreams for a girl is not love. - being trans is okay. Its wonderful in fact. You arent alone either and you never will be. -You have to make mistakes to learn - lie down - get back up and start again. - you deserve to get the healthcare you need. - your bipolar will get easier to manage. - forgiveness will save you - you will make your family proud by just being you 💖 . I think 17 year old Wednesday would be so shocked to see us now. So many hard years were leading up to the dream I'm living now. I'm not even sure If i had the chance that i would tell them this advice because all of my choices have lead me here - to the person I am. . Theres so much I wish I could have known, it makes me wonder what a 40 year old me will tell the 25 year old me? . . Image description : 1st slide is 25 year old Wednesday in colourful clothes, making a peace sign. Slide 2 - image reads [There are so many things I wish I had known when I was seventeen. I see now that some things you can only learn in time, and that’s okay. If I could look at a 17 year old Wednesday I would tell them that they are worthy of the world. I would tell them to keep their head up and not to listen to anyone who tries to tear you down - those people are doing so because they have a problem with themselves. Its not you and it was never you. The truth is that you live in a world where some people just don’t like us. The world is not a fair place, and life isn’t always going to be fair. I wish that you didn’t have to go for years pretending to be someone else because of this. Who you are is important, who you are is necessary and you will help people like you. You were never as alone as you thought you were. you are worthy of your dreams. You will make other people feel less alone – You will make nanny proud. Hold on because this is all around the corner. ] #queer #queerillustrator #queerartist #queerswhomake #artistsofinstagram #nonbinary #nonbinaryart
Ive just realised I never posted this cute little painting I made. It’s my cat felix, she’s so sweet. When I’m stressed I like looking at dog and cat videos online. Here’s my cat to brighten your day 💖 xxxx
MY PAL SARAH AND I HAVE DESIGNED NEW PINS!! :) We've spent months organising this totally sweet project AND we did it with a WHOLE OCEAN between us! They will drop August 1st, 50 in my UK shop and 50 in @sarahdayarts USA shop :) I will be donating 10% of the sales to @lgbtiqoutside 💖 please follow and support them!
PART 2 IN THE SAME DAY LOL Cis folk have provided some seriously colourful insights on my latest posts. You make me angry, and when I’m angry I make art! The more you show up to manipulate and harass, the more I will continue to openly deconstruct your abusive behaviour. You can no longer manipulate and violate while calling it ‘love’ . I will continue using my art to talk about the abuse you are constantly commiting while claiming u are allies. I’m not your queer. If you’re going to act like a victim when asked to do the bare minimum - leave my space! ❣️❣️❣️❣️TO MARGINALISED PEOPLE - in the future you are welcome to use these pieces as resources. If people do this to you, you can tag them/ share this with them so that they can understand what they are doing to you ❣️❣️❣️ I will be using this instead of putting in the labour of talking each cis person through their behaviour. Hopefully with the prescence of artworks like this, we wont have to go through this draining conversation again and again and again! . . ❣❣❣❣❣*waits for cis people to perform the piece out live in the comments* AAAND THE PRIZE GOES TO THE TWO PEOPLE WHO GAVE US THIS LIVE PERFORMACE❣❣❣
CW one slide mentions transphobia and racism. There's an ableist slur too. . Ok after seeing this behaviour too many times - I’m exhausted. I’m exhausted of having to interact with people calling themselves “allies” who actually manipulate and cause violence in my space. Towards me or other people in my community. Instagram will only let me post 10 slides so this will be part one. I would like for❣❣❣ NO WHITE CIS PPL ❣❣❣❣to comment on this. And I say specifically white people because all of the harassers were white! And it continues to come from white people! Just read it, and don’t act like this in the future. If I do see this behaviour on my posts I will be calling you out or just deleting you. . The reason marginalised people have their own spaces is because they have been excluded. If I create a space for trans people, don’t assume that it’s okay for you to start giving self centered monologues and taking up the majority of space. I will be deleting all comments like this in the future. You don’t get a cookie for deciding that other people are human beings. And you don’t get a cookie for coming into a space that isn’t for you and demanding that you be educated and coddled like a big baby. I’m 100000% done with this behaviour. . Also Its extremely interesting to see how many cis WHITE lgbq folx came out yesterday to straight up watch me get harrassed or to defend the honour of the violent cishet men and women who were coming for me. LGB people have NO excuse to sit back and take sides with oppressors - and it's a reason why I'd love for you all to stay away from my post today. You were no better than the people in this post. .
Reposting this for the people who seem to have forgotten. Look in the far bottom right corner. . Every single time a performative ally comes to my comments or dms asking for a basic question they expecting trans people to answer it for them. Its Dehumanising to be constantly treated as if we are nothing more than a search bar to them. . EVERY SINGLE TIME I simply ask an "ally" to Google it, do their own research, they call me "rude" "aggressive" "mean" etc. I want to assert RIGHT NOW that me asking you to do the absolute bare minimum is not victimising you. It's me genuinely asking you to do 1% of the work. I spend days making art to spread awareness, for a cis person to come in an patronise, criticise and emotionally manipulate me. . HERE IS A CLEAR BOUNDARY - IF CISHET PEOPLE IN THIS SPACE ARE NOT WILLING TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES IN ANY WAY, THEN THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO COME IN AND DEMAND THAT I DO MORE FOR THEM. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO BUT WONT GOOGLE IN SUPPORT OF TGNC PEOPLE, YOURE PROBABLY NOT DOING ANYTHING ELSE EITHER. . IF YOU THINK FOLLOWING ME IS ENOUGH TO SUPPORT TRANS PEOPLE THEN YOU ARE SEVERLY MISGUIDED.
I want to start by saying that its shit that a post like this has to exist. . I made this graphic inspired by @mars.wright ‘s posts this week. ❣️❣️❣️❣️I just want to assert that this graphic could be triggering for TGNC people❣️❣️❣️This one is more aimed at allies. I just wanted to point out a few ways in which we might be making TGNC people feel alienated, and how it can contribute to dehumanisation. W xxxx
UPDATE ❣He deleted all the posts and comments and claimed to have 'deleted' all of the sales info with it. He refused to make a donation, on the grounds that he claims he only sold 2 tshirts - however refused to actually show me any proof of sales. He admitted that he found the work on pintrest. I asked for public accountability as a bare minimum. He posts a non apology misgendering me throughout. If theres one thing learned today is that we should be supporting artists who actually make their own art. Dont send this person messages, dont bother. Just block this page and keep in mind that these companies are doing this EVERY DAY to artists. This is not new. I will ~always~ protect my art fiercely and I'm not afraid to stand up for myself either. Today has been long and draining. But hey lol, maybe this dude will actually have to make his own art now! Good luck Jan m8! . . @youdecidewhoyouare took my tshirt design quite openly - this a small poem I wrote in my notebook about being queer - it's my writing - they can change one word but we can all see what they've done here . This art MEANS something to me, the words are mine..The placing of the lettering is an EXACT copy of my original tshirt. I'm not surprised really. I feel deflated but not surprised. This is exactly why its important to buy from artists and not these so called "activist" tshirt companies. Time after time I see them stealing art from independent artists to line their pockets...... clearly it's my turn 😩 . @janglogovic as you claim to be the designer, I would love for you to explain this design to me! I'd love for you to explain the formation of the lines to me, I'd love for you to show me this design with an older time stamp than mine. Or I'd like this product removed as soon as possible. You can contact me via : email@example.com ❣❣❣I am asking for a basic settlement asking that this design removed and a public and accountable apology and a donation to be made out to The Outside Project ❣❣.
CREDITS : @kcatha @thejessicaraven at https://youtu.be/ZHGdWxd2iLU ❣ I made this graphic based fully on a YouTube video by Collective Action For Safe Spaces. I’m hoping that allies of every kind can start to use this graphic to be more present on the streets. If you see a marginalised person being harassed / threatened in public - do something, say something. It’s not okay to facilitate this anymore. It’s tiring to go outside and fear for your safety. Think about the spaces that you get access to without fear of harassment. Are we watching while marginalised people are facing danger?
This International Non Binary day there are some things I’d love for you to think about :) . Every person is different. Although our experience can be called non binary - we are all unique in the ways we experience gender. No one person can claim to be a monolith on Non Binary experience. To me non binary people are like sparkly snowflakes - you’ll never find the same one twice :) . . I want us to realise that gender is ever expansive and totally creative. We know by now that clothes, makeup, gentailia and pronouns do not determine gender. The thing I would love for you to think about today is the fact that gender is not a box with a lid sealed tight - it doesn’t have to be this way. . For cis allies - I don’t have anything radical to suggest to you other than just challenge yourself to think about gender in a more expansive way. Know that it’s an ever growing spectrum and never a box. W xxxx
Hey everyone! 💕 here’s a little reminder from Patricia! If you get someone’s pronouns wrong, correct yourself and move on :) this is one way of how NOT to respond when you mess up someone’s pronouns : “ OMG I AM SO SORRY IM SUCH A TERRIBLE PERSON I WILL ALWAYS DO BETTER 4 U CAUSE I LOVE ALL TRANS PPL AS A CIS WOMAN” that isn’t an appropriate apology - it’s not an apology at all in fact. A true apology is changed behaviour ☺️ relax, practise pronouns you aren’t familiar with, don’t make it about you when you hurt another person. . W xxx

My love for our community comes first 💖Today my friend @elly.maddock and I painted a HUGE canvas for @aktcharity in collab with j crew. It's in the window until Sunday next week! It was so surreal to see my artwork this big and it was lovely to paint with elly all day - even if I did get only get 2 hours sleep! Bye I'm off for a nap now hehe
❣❣IF U ARE QUEER DO NOT SWIPE AT ALL ❣❣❣ . . So yesterday a short documentary I filmed with @instagram dropped. I was immediately flooded with love and support. The video is so important to me. It took courage for me to film and It will always represent an important time in my life. I sobbed happy tears watching it. . . I then started to receive waves of harassment and death threats.. and it still hasn't stopped. its been so intense and extremely upsetting. I wanted to share some of them with my cishet followers today. This is why I'm visible. This is why we need your allyship. This Is what your community does to us. Visibility shouldnt have to come with pain. I'm tired. Pls keep doing the work to support lgbtqi+ people online and in the streets. W xxx

CW : MENSTRUATION . Folx it’s giveaway time! This time @lunapads has given me the opportunity to give away 2 sets of their trans inclusive boxer briefs!!! . Lunapads is the alternative period product company, and they've been leading the sustainable period revolution for 25 years 🌈The company is female-founded and cis woman, trans, & non-binary run, and was started by Madeleine Shaw because tampons and disposable pads were giving her big problems (rashes, general uncomfy-ness, you get the idea). Lunapads has always been a leader in eco-friendly practices, but in the past year they've become a completely zero waste operation (which means no scrap of fabric gets left behind!). I actually cannot wait for you to have a go with these briefs :) . . How to enter!!! - follow me and @lunapads 💕 - tag yourself or someone you know that may like to enter! . I’ll be picking two entries at 12pm this Sunday :)

❣❣❣CW : DYSPHORIA, SEX , MASTURBATION MENTIONS ❣❣ . . Hey folx! Today I recieved a lovely package from which was #gifted to me by @unboundbabes . it has me thinking about how I've felt about reclaiming my sexuality since coming out as agender. Firstly I want to say that I love my body. I love what it does for me everyday. But I've also found it challenging sometimes to connect with parts of my body sexually. I'll be honest and say that I struggle to accept my boobs. I want them gone. Sometimes I can feel a little powerless..But until I can have surgery, I've been working to try to deal with them being there. Wearing a binder has been so helpful for me. I can see myself as I should be! I do enjoy being in my body. And I'm happy I can celebrate being in my body too. I want to be more open about it in the process. . Being socialised afab taught me enjoying sex and masturbation is not for us. Were taught to be ashamed of masturbating and having sexual desire - yet at the same time were constantly sexualised even at very young ages. I'm 25 now, and I'm done with it. I'm totally bored of feeling ashamed of taking care of myself 🤷♂️ are you? Cause we need to talk! . I'm a sexual person and I'm not open about it enough in this space! I love sex and I'm proud of it 🌈 I especially see masturbation as an important aspect of my self care. So I'm just going to be more open about how masturbation, sex toys and accessories have helped me to start celebrating self intimacy, so here I am :) it's me Wednesday!! I'm cute and fat and I LUV queer sex! I think it's an absolute celebration of who we are.. and it shouldnt be censored! . . I want to thank @unboundbabes for sending me their palma ring and the collar and harness.. I put them on and just felt so powerful ❣IM LITERALLY FEELING MYSELF ❤️ omg they’ve given me a promo code too!!!!!! You get 10% off of orders over $35 if you use the code ‘wednesday’ !!!!! . . Ps look how lovely Susan is looking 😍
Hey! So this pride month I’ve been thinking about all of the young queer people who inspire me everyday. I wanted to say thank you to you all. I wanted to make a piece of art to bring us all together :) this is the most ambitious piece I’ve ever made, it took me almost month! . . As I sat down to plan this piece out I was incredibly nervous as I realised there was no way I could fit everyone in. So if you don’t see your face here, please don’t think that you shouldn’t be in this piece. There were many many people I couldn’t fit into this space. (Hopefully next time I can make a huge one!!). Also omg pls forgive me for the lack of better proportions. . . Rather annoyingly insta would only let me tag 20 of you, so I’m gonna mention you going from the top left :) . Thankyou for being unapologetically yourselves, thankyou for making me feel less alone. I love you all and I’m really thankful for everything you do :) LUV U xxxxxx This piece is featuring: Starting from the top left, @lachrwatson @benpechey @ellen__jones @kai_isaiah_jamal @nathancha_ @rvbyallegra @the_feeding_of_the_fox @mars.wright @leopardprintelephant @florencegiven @mxdarren_ @aorists @charlie_craggs @ggggrimes @adameli @fatvegfemme @paulaakpan @xysuz @rebel.lou @munroebergdorf @pidgeo_n @travisalabanza @rivergallo @foolsnghouls @chellaman @maryvbenoit @ihartericka and eb @girlpowersupply @anickians @alokvmenon @aaron___philip @andreadigiovanni @radamridwan @shivaraichandani @frances_cannon @ninten_beau @theluckyartist_ @poppythewitch @whoisbobcivil @katemoross @kei_maye @taziacira @attzs_ @lavernecox @indyamoore @thefoxfisher @uglastefania

Hey everyone! I wanna talk about what happened yesterday 💖 . .For a long time I've been following so many of you and being on this app has made me feel much less alone. The community I've found on Instagram has given me strength and boundless love. . . Yesterday I had the chance to meet some of my idols from here. We all sat together and laughed, shared stories and talked about the future. I've never felt so connected to my community. . Yesterday was one of the best days of my life 🌈 (yes that sounds cheesy but its true!!) Having the chance to sit with a circle of fabulous young queers and have us connect in this way was something I'll never really forget. All of my anxiety disappeared. It felt like home. And I was shocked at how emotional It felt to be in a space filled with like minded people... community really is everything . . So today I felt inspired to make some art about how important community is for me. I want to shout out : @radamridwan @aorists @shivaraichandani @andreadigiovanni @kei_maye @mxdarren_ @ninten_beau @theluckyartist_ @ellen__jones @makedaisychains . Thankyou for existing! Thankyou for putting yourself out there. Thankyou for your never ending creativity and vulnerability! And here's to a future where we can work together to achieve great things for people like us 💖 LUV U Xxxxxx . . There are so many of you who should be here with us too. Were really a worldwide family and there are so many of u who have been such incredible friends to me. Thanks to all of you who have worked to make such a strong community on Instagram!.🌸🌈 . . OMG and I forgot to say- we filmed something VERY special yesterday to be released in June! Keep ur eyeballs peeled, queers!! 💖
Hulllooooo my folx. Here’s journally thing for today 🌸 here's what I'm working on : . Lately I’ve been trying proper hard to start addressing the way I talk to myself. How am I supposed to recover when I keep talking to myself so unkindly? When I make a mistake I’m not going to call myself ‘stupid’. I’m going to say ‘I’m glad I’ve learned something new and I can do so much better next time!’. I guess it’s easy to feel frustrated and tired, and I take that out on myself. . Going the whole day talking nicely to myself can seem like a real achievement! And I’ve realised that I deserve better than the bad voice in my head :) I’m thinking that everyone deserves that kindness too 🌼 . . #MH #mentalhealthrecovery #bipolar #anxiety #anxietydisorder

Hiiiiii everyone, hope you had a good day. Here’s a bit of a reflection from today. . I’ve been thinking about how in the past I’ve felt like I should change the way I am to make other people confortable. It looks like this : I’m proud and confident in myself and I’m a bitch. I ask for what I deserve and I’m arrogant. I dress like myself and I’m rubbing my queerness in other people’s faces. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that people like to push me into a box I don’t fit in. Because I make them feel uncomfortable. But It’s not worth trying to change who i am for the comfort of others. . There’s so much that gender has done to box me in. It told me I should be shy and accomodating. It told me I couldn’t be a boss. It told me that there are limits. I’m done with gender. I don’t have it and it doesn’t have me. . Here’s the mood for 2019 : I’m going to ask for what I deserve. I’m going to be me without apologies. I’m going to honour myself too. .

It just occurred to me today that I never shared the comic I made for @chimeforchange with you folx! I had the chance to be a part of a zine about gender equality where I made some concise points about where allyship can start! Here it is !

I’m sure you folx know by now that this year I got to make some art for @lgbtcenternyc ! I was commissioned to make art in support of their new TGNC substance use and recovery group. With the help of the group members and @whoisbobcivil I made some pieces I’m really proud of :) here’s the first one and it’s true for everyone xxxx
For me, art isn’t just a job. It’s a big part of how I take care of myself. It’s not always about making something that is perfect or something that will pay for my food and rent- it’s about expressing who I am and what I’m feeling. And sometimes I do just have to lock myself away to recover when I’m overwhelmed. I usually will get a huge canvas and just use that space to process what’s going on. It really helps me to make something beautiful out of a bad feeling. And It’s a gift I’m thankful for everyday. For me, art helps me to find strength.

Hellooo hope everyone had a good day 🌸 . . Today I made this thread about art, and how art doesn’t have to conform to common expectations to be valid or “good”. It doesnt have to be like the art I share on my grid! Art can be anything you want it to be. . . I also wanted to use the moment to share one of my favourite pracitses : mark making as a means of relieving stress and anxiety. I’ve given you a glimpse of a technique that I learned from Yayoi Kusama. She taught me that I can make something beautiful out of my negative feelings. Art can really be anything you like. I’m hoping that some of you might give it a try and let me know if you find it as relieving as me? 💕
For a while I’ve been talking about how cis people can make steps to show up for trans people. I finally decided to make it into a colourful info graphic. I hope this helps others to think about the small ways that they can make a difference. I’ve also made a number of accessible resources in my story highlights about : being trans, being non binary, coming out as trans, how we can be better allies, trans awareness and basic gender study. I urge my cis followers to have a look 💕 W xxx
