A Poem for the Awkward Moments Trans People Find Ourselves in Every Day (VIDEO)

Back in March, Black Trans Media hosted a poetry event featuring New York City-based artists, including me, Phoenix Natasha Russell, Olympia Perez, and more. The first video from this epic night to be released features me performing a piece I wrote that highlights a very particular line of questioning that trans and gender-nonconforming folks are subjected to every day.

Check out Black Trans Media on Facebook and Twitter, as they host more events and will be compiling the performances and readings of some very stellar artists!
