Honoring Trans Day of Resilience

By Charlotte Robinson, November 14, 2019
Ten trans & non-binary visual artists & poets of color from across the country have collaborated to honor Trans Day of Resilience (TDOR) by creating original artwork to celebrate their communities. The TDOR art project is an extension & re-imagining of Transgender Day of Remembrance that takes place on November 20th. The project’s goal is to expand the conversation towards honoring & supporting trans people while they are alive & not just in memoriam. Micah Bazant, Forward Together Artist in Residence stated, “Forward Together is honored to present this project to the world for the sixth year in a row. At a time when white supremacy & anti-trans oppression are killing trans women of color, we offer this art to share our vision of trans freedom. Trans communities of color have always existed & have always used art to survive. As the government tries to erase trans people from laws & policies, art & culture are especially critical. There is no way to erase the beauty and power of trans resistance.” Led by Forward Together a national women of color-led organization whose mission is to unite communities to win rights, recognition & resources for all families. The TDOR art project acknowledges how violence disproportionately impacts trans people of color. The art project simultaneously uses visual art & poetry to uplift trans power & resilience. Trans artists & poets of color are telling their own stories of resistance, hope & liberation. Everyday Heroes by Shea Coco.
