Who Hurt You?

Artist Travis Alabanza - Being black, trans and gendernonconforming

Tuesday, 31 July

Sofie talks to artist Travis Alabanza about being black and trans and gender-non-conforming, making up for lost time fashion-wise, how the outside world tells you how to be, pronouns and fitting into boxes, growing up poor, an abusive relationship with the internet, how minority artists are politicised as &aposactivists’, who deserves vulnerability, oppression making the oppressed two-dimensional, the urge to be desired, perfection, trans people editing themselves in public and the bonding power of honesty.

Trigger Warning: Transphobia
