Andrew Nguyen writes about a new fund to support Black trans women artists for The Cut:
Queer|Art, an organization that connects and uplifts LGBTQ+ artists . . . announced a new $10,000 annual grant for self-identified Black trans women and trans femmes. Called the Illuminations Grant for Black Trans Women Visual Artists, it aims to celebrate the under-recognized contributions of Black trans women visual artists.
The grant was made possible by Aaryn Lang, Mariette Pathy Allen, and Serena Jara.
