Black Trans Joy
The Black Trans Art & Joy Fund is a private initiative that centers community care for Black Trans people (black trans women, black trans men and black trans non binary people) in Belgium and the Netherlands. It also focuses on shifting public narratives of Black trans life from experiences of trauma to experiences of joy.
In collaboration with the queer collective KLAUW, the Black Trans Art and Joy Fund has created a series of six video portraits featuring a variety of Black trans experience. Additionally, a short film (35 minutes) was premiered during Black Achievement Month Den Haag 2021.
Organized in collaboration with Venla Keskinen (Miila Angels 007)
PLAYGROUND is a monthly vogue event for all the voguers and ballroom kids. PLAYGROUND is a safe space, where practice takes place in a club environment instead of a dance studio. It is a space for the growing and glowing ballroom community and for voguers to come together, share, learn, try, fail and most importantly vogue downnnn.
