The funding provided will help support the creative vision for the recording release of "Adjusting My Crown". Proceeds will hire BIPOC, TGNC producers for mixing and mastering, graphic artists for visual promotion and most importantly video content to make the work more accessible to people of different abilities. The voices of Black transgender artists are necessary, especially during these uncertain times. Help us continue to ignite change.
Linda La interviews Mizz June about her artistic visions and the larger place of trans narratives in the cultural landscape. Each year, La MaMa’s Squirts gathers the most exciting voices from New York City’s queer performance world, across the generations. This year, three trans women artists with deep community roots will each craft a night of the festival, marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
Founded by Linda La & The Perfect Poison at the start of the Soaring 20’s, The Esoteric House of Transcendence is an activists and performers collective holding weekly, safe, nonjudgemental space for Black and Brown TGNC communities. Born out of a need for community connection, emerging out of quarantine and preexisting isolation; during a global pandemic, we cultivated a safe space where our community could learn and engage in Vogue/Ballroom culture and movement as a form of fellowship and therapy.
Using performing arts, activism and community building as healing and resistance, we maintain a weekly tradition of coming together in collaboration with Black Trans Liberation Kitchen, #StopKillingUsGlobalCampaign and Black Trans Health.
In collaboration with Black Trans Liberation Kitchen we connect TGNC people to fresh produce and a hot meal. In collaboration with the #StopKillingUsGlobalCampaign, we help raise awareness to trans mortality rates while supporting advocacy around sex workers rights.
Together, we practice, learn and teach. We mentor new talent, advocate for our communities and connect to resources, services, and events focused on their development as leaders, artists, and activists in our community.
