Trans Lives Matter! Justice for Islan Nettles

- a multimedia photography piece by Seyi Adebanjo

 Because the personal is political.

Because the brutal and increasing attacks on Trans Womyn of Color are outrageous their victimization causes outrage.

Because healing and action tighten our fists and boom our voices.

Islan’s murder was a hate crime, she was beaten to death in front of an

NYPD precinct in Harlem. Islan was taken off life support on Thursday

August 22, dying of her injuries.  She was only 21.

I covered her August 27th, 2013 Vigil at Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem steps away from where she was murdered.

This project covers the love and support community brought to support each other and her family; along with the continued oppression that occurs in the Queer community noting the increasingly particular targets of transgender and gender non conforming people.

 Trans Lives Matter! Justice for Islan Nettles

Went to a fantastic book/zine place called ‘Good Press’ which is tucked away in the quiet part of town and got some good finds! 1. ‘Happiness’ #4 featuring comic strips, interviews and essays plus I got a comp cd with it too….

2. K8 Hardy - ‘Frank Peter John Dick’ - A small book that features some of Hardy’s collages, they touch upon pop culture and all the images we encounter as consumers…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHnPAhcZ94g here’s a video of a panel Hardy was apart of with Colette and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on the subject on ‘Collage, Gender and Feminism’

Think I might start digging out some queer zines and maybe do a few photocopies and start doing some sort of zine swap thing… Will need to find a place that does decent photocopying…

Laura Parnes - Blood and Guts in High School (excerpt, 2008)

"Blood and Guts in High School" features actress Stephanie Vella in a series of video installations that re-imagine punk-feminist icon Kathy Acker’s book of the same title. The book received noteriety from 1978-1982 during the rise of Reagan republicanism and the emergence of punk rock. In Parnes’ interpretation, each video-chapter presents a typical scene in the life of Janie bracketed by US news events from the time period in which the book was written. These events saturate the character’s daily experience, informing her adolescent, nihilistic worldview and her desire for rebellion. As the viewer looks back at pivotal historical events (Jonestown Massacre, Moral Majority, Three Mile Island etc.) connections are drawn in relation to our current political situation.

"RAW, GLITTERING, PSYCHEDELIC … OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN, is a NON-BINARY, POST-BRO one person music/dance declaration of war on the accepted and the expected.

The OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN LP won’t be seen in any record stores. They won’t know where to put it. There isn’t any card, section, genre, that can contain it.

The grooves barely fit on the album even … this is a record unlike any other.
In an era when groups are formalistic recitations of previous groups, loathe to show any personality, innovation, or opinion – for fear of jeopardizing a future career in sales or politics – OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN is a vital bolt from the blue, a radical arrival which signals something outside of noise, punk, disco, pop …

Appearing fully formed, without a note or groove out of place, the O N-J record is a total statement; something brand new, a strike against complacency, a challenge thrown at the content-less stagnation of modern indie, garage, and whatever other tiresome genre exercises are being paraded around at the corporate festivals.

Combining two cassette only releases by O N-J, (INJURY TRAIN AND I’M NEVER GETTING OFF IT & VULNERABILITY), O N-J’s debut vinyl album captures the intensity of the same live performance that’s transfixing audiences coast to coast. OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN is ANNA NASTY (CHAIN & THE GANG, VEGETABLE) on keyboards, voice, saxophone … joined on the LP by MISHA POLESHCHUK (NO BABIES) on saxophone for this chunk of pure Casio crystal.” -Ian Svenonius

I’ve had a great day yesterday at Antifee fest with Dana and Steffen, whom I had the pleasure to meet. Plus, Dana gave me a copy of La Moustache zine #1 to which I submitted a piece on putting on shows with straight, cis-sexual dude bands. The zine is great, I love Bubi Zitrone’s piece a lot. Get in touch with Dana and check it out!
