Artist’s Quote

Trans and third-gender people have queered our relationship to the domestic long before we had the words for “he” and “she”. By continuing traditions of cooking, pottery, painting and textile making we celebrate our ancestors in a post-colonial world.

Luminary’ s Quote

What makes the difference is how you live, instead of where you live and how we relate to each other. This (Juchitán, MX) is where I am Felina Santiago…. It (being muxe) is a way of being. – Felina Santiago
