Grishno shows on her New York website what it means to be young and transgender in the U.S. (usually in video’s). Sometimes she republishes work of others like this video from the FtM teenager Casey.
I love the simplistic style of it that underlines the strength of the message. It brings me to an idea for an art project I’d like to start in due time. I’ll let you know if it comes to that.
It’s all so hurtfull and true what’s depicted in this clip! Even if you’re not living in the US or are lots of years older, many of the agonies are still there to stay and never go away. Like others I don’t want to be ‘tolerated’ or ‘accepted’, I just want to be. Because I am!
