TransParent; A Story of Loss in a Community Misunderstood

As someone who is a DIY (Do-it-Yourself) artist, I encourage women of color (of all self-identified genders/sexualities) to write, self-publish, make their own movies, etc.  Because if they don’t tell their stories, no one else will. I’m happy to promote “TransParent; A Story of Loss in a Community Misunderstood” a new film written by queer activist Natasha T. Miller:

“TransParent is a film about the life of Shelley “Treasure” Hilliard, a Detroit 19-year-old girl, beloved by her family and friends. TransParent is a film about Shelley’s murder, about a hate crime that wasn’t prosecuted as one. TransParent is about the struggle to forgive. TransParent is about Detroit. TransParent is about projections and perceptions and communities misrepresented and misunderstood. TransParent is about incredible beauty and horrific violence. TransParent is about a grieving mother and her commitment to honor her daughter, Treasure.”

If you can afford to contribute a few dollars to her project, please do so!! Miller has met her initial goal, but I’m sure some extra funds wouldn’t hurt  🙂
