Joe and I have launched a community art project on Tumblr! The idea for this originally stemmed from Joe’s thesis and was just transmasculine in New Zealand based – but we decided to expand it out to have ANY one who has ANY statement on how they feel about their gender; transwomen, transmen, genderqueers, drag performers, cis, etc. etc.
We felt like while Joe has to limit his thesis (based on time constraints and word limits) we didn’t have to limit this particular project in the same way.
We’re basically keen to show off your stuff! Postcards can be any size/shape/format -it’d be great if they had a visual element to it, but if you don’t wanna that’s cool too – it’s just any statement you wanna share that describes or relates to your gender/sex/identity/etc. It can be anything about being a gendered/non-gendered human in the world.
So, currently, there are no set limits for the submissions, (provided they are not sexist, racist, homophobic or transphobic) I think we’re just keen to see what art is produced.
One note tho, if you’re transmasculine/GQ and from NZ, could you leave us a little note so Joe knows if he can contact you about using the art in his thesis…
