On the 12th annual International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV), Nahshon Anderson offers an event featuring literature, poetry and lip-syncing, and dance by Trans artists. Nahshon will read an excerpt from her unpublished memoir “Shooting Range”. Along with artist, actress, activist, and performer Jazzmun Nichcala, they will showcase and discuss the impacts of deceased artists Jody Ray and Miss Kiwi. “Honoring our Trancestors” transcends time and boundaries and is a counternarrative to the multitude of dehumanizing stories and deaths currently popularizing the media regarding Transwomen of Color. The event celebrates the resilience and success of transgender and gender-nonconforming people and raises awareness of transgender rights. This program is presented in part by an arts grant from the City of West Hollywood.
