Querying historical and contemporary relationships to trans-feminist protest, FREE OUR SIBLINGS///FREE OURSELVES investigates agency and self actualization through trans-action. The subjects of these drawings weave together two distinct moments in time. Half of the subjects are from the Christopher Street Liberation Day protests of early 1970s; these protesters are the founders of the movement for trans-justice as well as instigators of the gay rights movement. The other half of the subjects are contemporary, protesters who continue the struggle for trans-justice. Through the shared staging of New York City streets the interwoven history of trans-action is merged into a single, collective moment of self actualization through resistance.
