My 2020 CENSUS Project highlights some of my journey navigating this pandemic as a full time artist and advocate. COVID-19 ironically started a journey I’ve been wanting to embark on but didn’t know how. Little did I know, I didn’t need to do much but trust the magic of QUEEN STREET. The amount of care, community, identity, and voices from that Seattle production contributed to the larger national conversation around art, politics, and the needs of Black multi-marginalized communities. And that is ultimately what your participation in the 2020 CENSUS can do. Your voice and your needs heard, recognized, honored, and upheld. There is power in our recognition. Make sure you’re counted in the end, we need you. For more information on the 2020 CENSUS visit cdforum.org/2020-CENSUS.

She takes part in many collaborations and collectives: Au Collective, DANDY, The Living Room podcast, and recently the WA Black Trans Task Force. As an artist with many gifts and passions her 2020 Census project will be a peak into how she as a performance artist adjusts to our new virtual reality.
