Trans Artivism

Samabhabona believes that some of the affective engagement can be created through integrating arts and using it creatively to further human rights causes. We feel it is in an extremely important tool for starting dialogues within and outside the community, and providing a space to trans individuals who experience trauma to express themselves and reclaim their narratives.

When people ask me whether I am third gender, I ask them, what was the first gender?
