We Spores, digital sound recording, 00:02:47
A first incantation, this reading sparks a year-long audio archiving project which will document the work of Trans Family Archives as we record the generational experiences of trans and gnc folks in Boston and New York City, placing ourselves in a lineage, alongside the multitude of non-human trans lineages on earth. Thanks to Culture Push for supporting this important project!
We Spores is read by Kim Barnes, Tanner Slick, Dill Ma, me, Jack Pierson, Lenny Schnier, April Franklin, and written by myself.
Trans Family Archives began in 2018 as a year-long collaborative intergenerational community project. This collaboration includes myself, Boston Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Youth (BAGLY) and The Fenway Institute's LGBT Aging Project, and is funded by The Boston Foundation.
We host free dinners at various host organizations, intentionally multigenerational spaces, so that tgnc folks of all ages can witness each other, connect, communicate, build trust, and confront generational bias.

Thanks to The Boston Foundation for this opportunity to bring different generations of trans and gender non-conforming folks together to discuss the things that keep us separate while strategizing ways we can hold ourselves together.
