Still Here: Transgender Day of Remembrance 2017

In November 2017, I had the chance to create portraits of 26 out of the 28 openly transgender people known to have been lost to transphobic violence in the United States alone. The artwork lived in Goddard Chapel, followed by the Tufts University LGBT Center in Somerville/Medford, MA. Project commissioned by the Tufts University LGBT Center and the Tufts Chaplaincy.
