2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Heather will create a series of short documentaries that preserves the histories and amplifies the voices of queer and trans people of color, people of color, and women of color within the leather community. In her interviews, Heather will cover topics like microaggressions, direct racism and phobia, and liberation. A collaborative conceptual portrait will accompany each video. Heather intends to create a universal and empathetic view into her subjects’ experiences as a way to reach beyond the leather community, destigmatize fetish, and foster change and acceptance. The project will culminate in a screening and exhibition of the portraits, with a discussion to follow.
