We sought to get to the heart of our day-to-day experience. 

COMMUNITY-LED, COMMUNITY-DRIVEN

This initiative has been led by the transgender/nonbinary community, from research design through analysis.  Join us for our grand reveal on Saturday, Nov. 18th at the Pittman-Puckett Gallery (Affirmations, 290 W. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale, 48220).  

Our community has had to find their own way.

In doing so we have found strength.

Join us as we share these messages of strength and resilience communicated through art.

HEADSPACE

Hear our voices of resilience. 

Only available on 11/18. 

live performances!

ANGELINA NORDSTROM
pronouns: she/her

CHICAGO-BASED POET

 My work can best be described as food for the mind, heart, and spirit.

 

My work has shaped me to not only use my voice to share my testimony with others, but it has also shaped my development as a up and coming advocate for my community and as a presence in the trans community. My work as a writer and a poet has shaped me to take a stand for right against wrong.

DAISY J. MOSHER

pronouns: she/her

LEAD-VOCALIST OF THE DAISYS, WOMB, and solo act FLOWER GIRL

I write and perform music from the emotional perspective of a non-binary transfemme navigating through life in a world and industry dominated by cis men.

 

My music has been almost entirely responsible for me finding my voice and confidence. I came out as trans two years ago to a bandmate and we proceeded to write an entire album based around our experiences being trans. I’ve been very fortunate that my career has been so closely alligned with my own identity.

JACK ELLIOT EARLS
pronouns: he/him

ROCKABILLY-INFLUENCED MUSICIAN

Music has been such a significant part of my life. Growing up in my grandfather’s home (Jack Earls senior) hearing him sing and watching him play shows, inspired me to play myself. I look up to him musically very much. He was very successful in the fifties playing rockabilly and becoming an original sun recording artist (with a number one hit in fifty six called Slow Down). I’m very fortunate to have such a great musical influence as a father and grandfather.

CHET CLOVER
pronouns: they/them

TENDERQUEER HIJINX & HOPELESS OPTIMISM

Every single piece is in some way about resiliency and undiluted truth– about bright spots of clarity in the foggy landscape that illuminate my path for a brief moment in time.

I just want people to hang on to the end of that rope real tight. I want people to trust that the mystery is endless and has a real gift to offer them if they only stick around to find out.

Can’t wait to see you there!
