Brightly colored Illustration of four trans femmes of color with the text “Indulgence as Self Love”. Three figures sit together in a grassy clearing with a fruit platter, flowers, drinks and butterflies, while one person picks flowers in the background.
“Our people often need to focus on making it through the obstacles each day lays in front of them, focusing on surviving in a world not built for those who defy gender roles. But here we are… existing as beautiful and powerful trans and nonbinary people. Let us indulge and let us find pleasure. We deserve it all.” —Amir Khadar
