Basic Rights Oregon’s Trans Justice Program hosted Trans Artists on Health Care on Friday, September 14th at the Black Cat Café and Pub on Interstate. The all-ages art show included visual art and performance pieces highlighting trans health care experiences. The show featured work from eleven trans identified artists, and over 50 community members and allies attended!
With poetry reading, storytelling, interactive performance pieces, and a variety of visual art, the show offered a dynamic look into the health care system as we experience it. Art is a powerful avenue for telling our stories, for empowering one another, and for moving communities to action. As we continue our work to win trans inclusive health care, we hope to provide a platform for honest expression of our struggles, for us to share our visions for the future, and for us to celebrate each other’s passion and creativity.
