The Hope of Protest

I (they/she) have been inspired by courageous trans protestors throughout history to create a personal and universal response to trans and queer protest. Starting with the Stonewall riots, I have included key slogans, iconography and quotes from my communities’ defining moments in the war against capital. This work aims to show that aggression and oppression follow trans people, so long as there are walls to keep us in.
