“The life span of a trans woman living in Latin America is 35 years of age.”
The activist work done as part of my women’s and gender studies minor includes asking ourselves, as a feminist collective, how information can be presented as activist practice. In my Trans* Genders and Sexualities Class, we examined a report about Trans Latina women immigrants. I commented that the data is crucial for informing our praxis, but that the visual presentation was weak. I have since taken it upon myself to start re-designing the entire 50+ page report into a cleaner, more accessible document as part of my own feminist practice as a graphic designer.
