  • So I’d call the success folks! Right after the screening, this friend of mine who has really shown up for me recently, couldn’t wait to post on my FB wall. Not to mention it was surreal to have the first filmmaker I met and conversed with at the film festival for my first film screening tonight, and a woman who’s written songs that Sinatra toured with. 😯 Learned a few more things about Zoom tonight. I bet it will be even more fun tomorrow, but I’m gonna bask in this feeling of success right now. #success #firstfilm #firstonline #performanceart #concert #lovemypeople #blacklivesmatter #blacktranslivesmatter #restup #bigdaytomorrow

  • at the end of the day we’re are all skin and bone. 
judging someone for how they identify, who they love, the color of their skin, or the country they were born in is beyond repulsive and unnecessary.
if each individual person learned to worry ab themselves rather than ridicule someone’s life, the world would be such a better place. #blm#feminism#blacktranslivesmatter#dumptrump#endracism#loveislove#weareallhuman#oppression

  • Part of dismantling white supremacy is understanding/identifying what the white is. I’m black and my mom has Swedish on her line so I used Kulning—a vocal herding-magic—to summon these cows today. The adults didn’t respond in the video because at this point, I’d called and fed them twice. But this little bb always came. Muriel doesn’t like humans at all. The farm intern—who has to get on her knees and bow to get this cow to come—was shocked when she saw this. She’s never even seen Muriel run. I’m on that lil enby farm boi tip and loving it.

  • It’s the end of #internationalnonbinaryday. Tonight I sat on the couch with Wren in our new apartment and watched unsolved mysteries. Out of nowhere I got a glimmering and fleeting moment of gratefulness for where we’re at in life. A successful move to our second apartment together, in a mansion in the suburbs, sitting in a completely arranged living room, with the person I’m going to marry, and top surgery rising right over the horizon.

Not everything has been glimmering in the slightest. Behind the scenes it’s the messiest it’s ever been for me. Starting a lot of good work in therapy. Aside from all that, I can’t ignore the good feelings when they come up. I love that we’re both trans and that we’re also doing pretty good in life. I’m glad we have each other, because we wouldn’t be able to have certain good things without each other’s support. I’m thankful for @wrenovating and my parents for supporting us in life and helping with this move and for helping me with surgery, and Wren’s mom for supporting him in his life and helping us clean the new place.

There’s just a lot of good that I easily ignore because I have pessimistic tendencies. So just wanted to write about the good stuff. If you’re still reading, wow, giving you hugs and hope you’re wearing a mask when you go out and you’re being safe because we all need to take care of ourselves now so we can be there together later. Also, #blacktranslivesmatter and #bipoclivesmatter and we have to keep up the fight, continue sharing resources and keep learning. 🤘

  • Individually customized uniT shirts from last years pride!

This Unity Pride graphic was made last year during pride month 2019 leading up to the Newark Pride Parade, where is was proudly displayed at a booth and distributed as “Uni-T” shirts on this very day last year, July 14th. A lot has changed in the world since then, and we may not be able to gather physically this year, but we must be louder than ever in our continued support and love for the Newark/Jersey City/ NJ LGBTQ+ community!”

Thank you.

  • Reposted from @janetmock October 2017, the Bronx. My first day on set for the pilot episode of POSE. 

I hadn’t ever been a part of a TV production of this scale in my life. At this point, I had spent three months in the POSE writers room in LA helping shape the story without seeing how the cast spoke, how they moved, how they showed up. (I was not apart of the series regular casting process as I was being recruited that summer). 

So it was such a DREAM to meet @mjrodriguez7 @indyamoore @dominiquet.a.r.jackson @angelicaross @hailiesahar. It was like a family reunion. A homecoming. When I tell you I had to hold back tears as I watched them from the monitors....whew! To see black trans women and femmes be fussed over, catered to, tailored and tweaked and CENTERED... my heart was bursting. There was a healing taking place. I don’t know if I even realized it then because I was so focused on the work at hand. I recognize now that the little black trans girl who sat in her mother’s living room watching TV and searching for images of herself was being built back up. She was being told the life she lived mattered, the stories she told mattered, the experiences she shared mattered. Three years and 18 episodes later, I am still being held by POSE, made the better, pushed to dream bigger, made more whole. Without the talent, craft and dedication of these sisters and siblings, POSE wouldn’t be what it is — a revolutionary series that centers Black trans and queer people and the families we create for ourselves. It’s the new American family drama. I’ve been able to live my dreams, writing this series and directing this cast, showing the entire industry that the people who lived it are most equipped to tell their own stories. I hope on this final day of Emmys voting, the women and femmes in this photo, from our first day coalescing, are recognized for our work. #posefx #fyc #blacktranslivesmatter -

  • A celebration that bears sharing and repeating. Every.Single.Day. ⁣
[REGRAM] congratulations 🎉 @iamjarijones on this spectacular culmination of joy, accomplishment, and leadership. ⁣

“There are moments that I heard about, that help you forget when the world told you “Never” !!!⁣
⁣
There are these moments I heard about about that help you heal when the society has tried to beat you down , over and over again.⁣
⁣
There are these very real moments that I heard about that help you feel affirmed even when you don’t see yourself.⁣
⁣
I’ve been searching my whole life for those moments, I got tired of looking for those moments.⁣
⁣
So I decided to create them. Not for me but for the next dreamer, outcast, queer, trans, disabled, fat, beautiful black, piece of starlight waiting for their moment to shine.⁣
⁣
It has been such an honor and pleasure to sit in my most authentic self and present imagery of a body that far to often has been demonized, harassed , made to feel ugly and unworthy and even killed.⁣
⁣
I present this image, myself and all that my body stands for to my community and chosen family, in hope that they see themselves more clearly than ever and further realize that they are worthy of celebration , of compassion , of love and gratitude.⁣
⁣
Thank you to @ryanmcginleystudios and the @calvinklein family for a collaboration that will hopefully be a symbol of hope and love during these moments. ⁣
