'TenderQueer' is an illustrative portrait series exploring the stories of how the intentional queering of Black masculine identity can provide a space for healing while unpacking and exploring the avenues in which Black genderqueer and trans people navigate our bodies, fashion, communities, partners and self.
This is the first installment of an on-going series and will focused on the stories of 9 individuals from around the world, as they share how they understand themselves in relation to the world while defining and redefining Black, queer life.
Complimentary refreshments & good conversation will be had by all attending.
— ABOUT THE ARTIST — Ethan Parker (he/they)
Ethan's artistic journey began in the winter of 2014 as a means of coping with mental illness and unpacking gender identity while exploring the world in a queer, Black, trans body. They've worked hand-in-hand with national and local nonprofit organizations to create visual noise loud enough to disrupt cyberspaces while drawing attention to relevant social movements impacting the intersections of Black lives within queer and trans communities. He's a geeky human who enjoys glitter, comic books and sushi, preferably at the same time.
