Trans Day of Resilience Art Project (www.tdor.co) grew out of a need to celebrate and support trans women and femmes of color, not only in memoriam but in LIFE. For the past 6 years, this project has brought trans artists and organizers together to imagine a world that cherishes trans communities of color. The art and writing we've created has been used in actions and altars, in classrooms and prisons, and by hundreds of big and small, urban and rural trans-led groups who are saving our lives.

We welcome submissions from youth, new artists, as well as those with more experience. Trans women & trans femmes of color especially encouraged to apply!
. . . .
We believe in your brilliance! Apply apply apply! 💖🔥

I printed it. Then put it in a corner and gave it wide berth like the wild animal that it is - then after a week of circling I put my hands on it and am facing the beast. I thought that materializing the first draft of my manuscript would feel triumphant, and there is some of that. But mostly it feels complicated - like dissociated, is that really mine? Do I want to own it and all the contractions and fevered labor I have yet to face to birth it? Do I really want to share all the soft and tender and ugly parts of it, and of me with people who will be indifferent and unkind? I am sitting with these feelings and also dancing with the coming of summer and sun and fire - my elements and season - and stepping forward toward the flames cuz at the end of it all Im a pyro and maybe I can welcome some burns. And shit. 232 pages and 70,586 words is something to celebrate. 📸: Teo .

. “In 2013, I had a miscarriage. It was an unexpected pregnancy but my husband and I were excited about the possibilities. At the 8 week OB/GYN appointment, which I attended alone, the doctor paused during the un-anticipated ultrasound.  She went to find another doctor and I knew something was wrong. They confirmed the fetus showed stalled growth and that it was no longer a viable pregnancy. Up until that moment, I didn’t make much of the pregnancy, playing down the implication on our lives. So it was a bit unexpected when tears welled and I began to cry while reclined on the doctor’s table.  I went home and pushed away any feelings, and rationalized that how can I deeply mourn something that I hardly had a chance to bond with.  My husband and I never really talked about this and the grieving process was as silent as the miscarriage.⠀
⠀
In early 2017, I surprisingly found out that I was pregnant. Although not completely planned, we were intentionally not using contraception and had discussions about starting a family, and from his prompting, green-lighted a baby as a welcomed possibility.  When I found out I was pregnant, I was overjoyed- excited to think about the future. I felt more prepared this time. My miscarriage helped me to focus on my health and prepare physically.  What I was unprepared for was my husband’s reaction.”
