Small Works for Big Change

I am so happy to be participating in the Sylvia Rivera Law Project event: Small Works for Big Change!

small works

This event is an art auction that benefits and furthers the goals of SRLP which include:

  • Providing access to free, quality, respectful, affirming legal services for low-income transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming people.
  • Using training, public education, policy reform, and precedent-setting lawsuits to end state sanctioned and institutional discrimination, violence, and coercion on the basis of gender identity and expression, which we understand is inextricably related to race and class.
  • Building a non-hierarchical collective organization that internally practices what we’re struggling for by developing the leadership of low-income transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming people of color.
  • Participating in the larger movement for racial, social, and economic justice that includes gender liberation and prioritizes the issues of those most affected by the systems of oppression under which we live.

Not only have I curated a small donation of West Coast art and music, but with my daughter Clementine, I will be attending the March 8th event in New York City!!!

Included in the art I am sending to the event are:

  • 4 incredible signed and numbered Letterpress prints by J.Hukee of Pope Press in Olympia, Washington.  (Including the one pictured above! “Today I will be the Hunter,” 2013) Pope Press is a community letterpress started by Hukee in an effort to honor the late Dr. Elspeth Pope’s vision of a space for people to come together and learn to print on her equipment.  Hukee’s development of this space is grounded in Social Justice and Change and includes an event and workshop calendar.  It’s such an honor to accept and pass along this donation from Hukee! Thank you Hukee.
  • 2 signed and numbered hand colored prints by Jason Vivona.  Jason Vivona is a multi-media artist and musician whose work has been exhibited in numerous galleries across the United States including: 111 MINNA in SF, The Museum of New Art in Detroit, and Vitale Gallery in Florida to name a few. His work has been featured solo at Syracuse University and Homestar Modern in Portland, OR. and published in Juxtapoz, Transworld Skateboarding, WARP, DIW, Skyscraper, RELAX, Portland FunBook 3 and many more.  I fucking love his art. LOVE IT.
  • You Are Plural’s newly released full-length album on vinyl: “Rabbit Rabbit.”  I am so excited to send 2 LP’s of You Are Plural’s new album to this benefit!  This album is perfect and the band is not only divine but their label: BrickLane Records can’t stop putting out all of  my favorite albums of 2014.  Thank you so much to the band for this donation!
  • And finally I am including an original ink and watercolor painting that I made of Janet Mock for the launch of her new memoir: “Redefining Realness, My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love and So Much More.”  It was an honor for me to be part of Janet’s launch team and I am donating this piece with her blessings! I will also be including two signed copies of my new book, “Meet Polkadot,” and two limited art prints featuring illustrations from the book.
