Flashes & Strokes: a Tale of Two Mediums

The digital and traditional arts are thriving in LA. From newer, technology based media like photography and digital art to more traditional art, there is so much to see, explore and learn from in Southern California.  Through our Flashes and Strokes series, we’d like to celebrate artists from both worlds: traditional and digital.

As International Women’s Day approaches, I want to highlight the work of transgender women who dedicate their lives to the advancement of LGBTQ+ rights. Their work reflects the various capacities in which activists and organizers create change, each of them equally important in the fight for equal rights. ⠀ ⠀ Jennicet Gutiérrez is a founding member of Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement and much of her activist work supports trans women detained for their immigration status. She is also known for interrupting President Obama during a White House reception, urging him to stop the detention and deportation of LGBT immigrants, she may have been silenced — but people took notice.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #internationalwomensday #womensday #IWD #familiaTQLM #myexistenceisresistance2019 #qtpoc #queerlatinx #translatina #lqbtq #trans #EndTransDetention #socialjustice #california #la #losangeles #latimes #lamagazine #outmagazine #justice #photojournalism #paoloriveros #paoloriverosphotography #translivesmatter #transvisibility #selfassignments #documentaryphotography #canon5d
