Adonis BC Okonkwo
(1) by Jimmy Easton

Adonis BC Okonkwo is a performance artist, media maker, producer, writer, and researcher originally from south Georgia. Sometimes he writes. Sometimes he models. Sometimes he uses his body to tell a story. Sometimes he screams into the void to disco beats. He thinks we all deserve a chance. The main focuses of his research include, trans inclusive reproductive health and justice, inclusive representation in the media, and nuance Black trans narratives.

Adonis will assemble a zine on the history of trans/human rights in Philadelphia, centering the lives/narratives of Black trans people. Adonis will curate and accompanying art exhibit that will also function as the release party for the zine. The zine will later be disbursed to archives and libraries across the country.
