Trans Power Toile Blue Wallpaper (x Grant Shaffer)
About the pattern:
The images within the toile, available in Blue, Pink, and White, highlight icons and heroes like Sylvia Rivera, Lucy Hicks Anderson, Rita Hester, Justin Vivian Bond, Marsha P. Johnson, and Venus Xtravaganza, as well as the many trans individuals who fought tirelessly and continue to fight for our rights and protection as lgbtq+ people. Legendary sites of trans resistance like the Stonewall Inn and Gene Compton’s Cafeteria are featured as well.
About Hetrick Martin Institute:
HMI serves as a resource for transgender and gender non-conforming young people, who are often subjected to violence, stigma and discrimination. HMI helps trans youth overcome the hardships and mental challenges posed by transphobia, which can be detrimental and leave behind long-lasting effects. They help raise awareness and provide trans young people with medical support resources—often times difficult for them to access, especially recently throughout the coronavirus pandemic. A resource guide published for the trans community can be found at www.hmi.org/cv19.
