whewww I’m a little late to this train but in case you haven’t heard, @rookiemag is hitting its brakes after 7 years of sincere realness. thank you thank you to the very first publication I ever REALLY loved, the first to publish my work, and the first I ever contributed to; for giving me my first deadlines, first platform, and a family of bright friends/artists. Hella firsts! I owe so much to Rookie,(/Tavi, who found me on this here app) for the time spent together, and afterwards. there’s no way I’d be on the creative journeys I am today If they hadn’t started here. 💌 love to @tavitulle , the whole rookie team, and everyone who’s saying goodbyes to this tender/powerful space/force.
the state is SO scared of our magic. generations, heritages, and legacies of fluid principle. transness is untouchable. too real for the admin.
cette fille!! this girlll 🧡
tysm @tommyhilfiger !!! swipe to witness an actualized flavor explosion on set (the honor goes to @iam_janaye ), runway pics, and my leg decimating itself while my friends abandon ship aka the bund.

wrapped couture week with @maisonmargiela in 7 inch platforms, a packaging tape crown, and void of arms: basically, conceptually kinky af and vry content to conclude there. 😈 —————————————————— (ps exclusively working under those with morals that are parallel to urs is nearly impossible in an industry that is inherently unethical. SO im infiltrating and pushing thru for rn. as a general statement: I don’t always condone everything that clients stand/stood for) anyways~ ham to doing couture fashion week! literally been dreaming of going since I was in middle school!
@miumiu CLUB and afterwards (with my irl teen titans superhero squad before we levitated our way to the Eiffel Tower) 10/10 recommend watching the show and melting to @ithurman and @iamnaomicampbell EATING their huntiest walks. THANK YOU @kegrand @bitton @patmcgrathreal @guidopalau @ouimanagement 💓💓 Met so many good sistren this night :’)

acrylic/ink work from last Sunday during which I had lost all 3 components of the PKW device (phone keys AND wallet) and was at the mercy of nyc with my notebook for directions and shifty mta scamming tactics.
documentation of the incredible young ppl participating in my “Fashion as a Gender Deconstruction Device” workshop that I led last weekend during the first ever @womynforwomyn conference ☀️ We began unpacking ways in which we all internalized the gender binary/transmisogyny over our lifetimes and proceeded to finding ways we can unlearn those destructive values through various forms of practicing fluidity/nonconformity/improvisation: in this case, making garments intended only for making the internal, external. What you see each participant wearing is an externalized moment of their gender (fabricated thru a basic line drawing exercise), or a gender expression, being worn as a testament to their own inherent fluidity. Clothing is often the PRIMARY characteristic contributing to how our genders are perceived by most of our binary-abiding society; which comes with its dangers, as well as opportunities for catalyst! Meaning fucking with it (safely/mindfully) is an effective way to engage in the dissolution of the gender binary and transmisogyny.
Happy #TransDayOfVisibility ~~ last month I was in the national portrait gallery doing a public draw-in and was struck by a lack of a mirror view of transness looking back at me between the thousands portraits on display. Its incredibly vital that we make ourselves and our siblings visible, not only for documentary purposes, but so that we can see ourselves void of the gaze of the white/cis/het/able monoculture that curates, taints, and profits off of our image. (WHILE remaining sensitive to the fact that it is still unsafe for so many trans/gnc people, particularly those of color, to be visible) This is an image I painted of my queen/marvelous friend @aaron___philip who I admire endlessly and hope you all give HELLA love to today on #TDOV amongst the hella trans/gnc entities that deserve it. 💖💖💖
