Documenting the 2017 Mike and Ike Icons Ball. Participating and Observing an endangered community celebrate life at the end of Pride Month. Witnessing and processing Discrimination from outside and the sidelines. Coping with Stereotypes; Racism, and the spread of Rumors. My perspective on human and civil rights; identity, and sexual politics have been forged existing in a room with others; stuck in a situation where bias, confusion, and judgment can breakdown a community meant to uplift and secure.
Here are a few photos taken last month. Walking the busy streets of New York is perhaps one of my favorite sports. Pushing my way through the crowds while dodging designer bags like a running quarterback. It is truly frustrating and exhilarating getting from Point A to Point B. Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge is especially overwhelming. I don't know how I've survived these streets the past 17 years. Especially when I don't recognize myself as I charge through the ever-changing NYC landscape. What I do know...I am not alone in the game of Life. Everyone is playing. Everyone is performing. Surviving is an act.
