the finale of @euphoria is tonight. it feels rlly hard to articulate anything more than noises around this rn; so I’m just gonna leave @mistersamlev ’s quote (which makes me next level emo ) right here until after it’s all over, and unadulterated mush is the only option: “Euphoria is about Love. It’s about being seen and heard and known. It’s about how, if you keep your heart open, there are people who can change your life. It doesn’t cure everything, but it sure as fuck helps.” 💜

the state is SO scared of our magic. generations, heritages, and legacies of fluid principle. transness is untouchable. too real for the admin.

wrapped couture week with @maisonmargiela in 7 inch platforms, a packaging tape crown, and void of arms: basically, conceptually kinky af and vry content to conclude there. 😈 —————————————————— (ps exclusively working under those with morals that are parallel to urs is nearly impossible in an industry that is inherently unethical. SO im infiltrating and pushing thru for rn. as a general statement: I don’t always condone everything that clients stand/stood for ) anyways~ ham to doing couture fashion week! literally been dreaming of going since I was in middle school!
one of my best friend’s inflamed throat; me looking at my kinda Inflamed throat; a tree penetrated by a metal rod. ~photos from last week (the tree pic is from my first roll of film that I just finished/got developed woooo ) been feeling super distant from social media/don’t rlly know how to engage w it rn but here’s a thing I made!!

Happy #TransDayOfVisibility ~~ last month I was in the national portrait gallery doing a public draw-in and was struck by a lack of a mirror view of transness looking back at me between the thousands portraits on display. Its incredibly vital that we make ourselves and our siblings visible, not only for documentary purposes, but so that we can see ourselves void of the gaze of the white/cis/het/able monoculture that curates, taints, and profits off of our image. (WHILE remaining sensitive to the fact that it is still unsafe for so many trans/gnc people, particularly those of color, to be visible ) This is an image I painted of my queen/marvelous friend @aaron___philip who I admire endlessly and hope you all give HELLA love to today on #TDOV amongst the hella trans/gnc entities that deserve it. 💖💖💖

hi hello I've been back in NYC for a moment and feel as though I've had enough time and open headspace to digest what the fuck just happened over this last (fashion lol ) month- as it has felt relatively life changing and it doesn't feel right to move on without taking a moment to speak on it. ------ i want to thank everyone, my beautiful sweet angelic friends/family (there's no difference if you've been there, chosen family is the only family ) who have lifted me up, supported me, and listened to/advised me through show season. --------- I also cannot move forward without checking my privileges as I would not have had access to these kinds of opportunities in the absence of my white privilege, "passing" privilege, and other various physical characteristics that have gained me entry into the white/cis/het/thin/able dominated spaces of the high fashion industry. ***Speaking directly to people who have allowed me (and other privileged models who belong to marginalized communities ) entry into this season's spaces: it MUST be known that I hold up every expectation that our presence THIS season must only be the prelude of your efforts to initiate NEXT season's entrance of my transfemme and gender non conforming siblings, those of color and particularly those who are black, those who don't fit into the public's binary, those who experience conventional/clinical disability on physical and psychological levels, and in a broader sense, those who expand beyond what the industry's "ideal model" looks like. With urgency I insist that you work with every under represented facet of marginalized folk in need of mirror views in mainstream culture. The work is not over until EVERYONE is equally represented. And that in itself is an indicator that there is still so much work left to do. -------- With that, another MASSIVE Thank You to the agencies, casting directors, and creatives who have let me step up onto your platforms this season @elitenyc @premiermodels @ouimanagement @hookerthebooker 💖💖💖 I am soaking up everything that I can and am PUMPED keep growing into this work (alongside ALL my siblings. ) <3
