Today In History We Honor Jean-Michel Basquiat

"Underlying Jean-Michel Basquiat’s sense of himself as an artist was his innate capacity to function as something like an oracle, distilling his perceptions of the outside world down to their essence and in turn, projecting them outward through his creative acts." via basquiat.com

"Believe it or not, I can actually draw." Jean-Michel Basquiat

I do feel there is a preoccupation with that. The preoccupation with transition and surgery objectifies trans people. And then we don’t get to really deal with the real lived experiences. The reality of trans peoples’ lives is that so often we are targets of violence. We experience discrimination disproportionately to the rest of the community. Our unemployment rate is twice the national average; if you are a trans person of color, that rate is four times the national average. The homicide rate is highest among trans women. If we focus on transition, we don’t actually get to talk about those things… By focusing on bodies we don’t focus on the lived realities of that oppression and that discrimination.

Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there. - Meryl Streep
