2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Kayleb will write a full-length collection of poems in response to the paintings of Hernan Bas, a queer Detroit-based artist, that focuses on queer and trans joy. Bas exclusively paints slim male bodies at the mercy of brackish, hectic landscapes. Kayleb aims to critique such hegemonic portrayals that perpetuate body shaming in the gay community, write through Bas' images as a way to explore their own trans/male identity, and celebrate trans bodies within the practice of poetry.
