We Are Here is my way of archiving the love, light, and power in the TGNC communities of New Orleans. I wanted to use last year’s concept “Give us our roses while we’re still here” as a foundation and show the world that we can also flower and love ourselves. And we do, everyday. This is a piece about unapologetic existence is whatever way we chose to grow.
