Traditional cultural industries have long excluded those deemed non-normative, including queer and transgender people of color. These barriers include gatekeeping practices that prevent these groups from having access to traditional modes of cultural production. This conversational roundtable discussion will convene a group of transgender artists, media producers, and activists to discuss how they envision their work as a form of revolt against normative modes of cultural production.
