Jenna Talackova Can Compete, But the Fight Against Trans Injustice Rages On
Hey guys! We would love your support with our kickstarter page to get this magazine’s publishing fees covered. And of course, once we hit that goal… We hope to be working closely with people in the community running awesome blogs like this for writing and even be used as a place to advertise. I know this is a fundraiser and that’s one of your conditions, but if you do decide to post anything about it we would be very thankful :D
The Peculiar Kind’s third episode of the second season focuses on LGBT Homeless youth. Featuring Claudio, a homeless 20 something living in NYC by way of Michigan, and Kate Barnhart, executive director of New Alternatives; an LGBT homeless youth program in New York City. We hope to spread the word, inform and inspire change within the LGBT homeless youth system.
Mentoring, donating and skill sharing are just a few things we can offer our youth. Specific housing and fostering programs/options are growing but are still few and far between. Let’s actively work to change the violence, discrimination and sexual assault our LGBT homeless youth face.
You can learn more about volunteering, donating and getting involved in your town:

Toyin Odutola for HEROES . Artist . Brooklyn, NY . 2013
TOYIN’S STATEMENT OF METHODOLOGY
"Where some may see flat, static narratives, I see a spectrum of tonal gradations and realities. What I am creating is literally black portraiture with ballpoint pen ink. I’m looking for that in-between state in an individual where the overarching definition is lost. Skin as geography is the terrain I expand by emphasizing the specificity of blackness, where an individual’s subjectivity, various realities and experiences can be drawn onto the diverse topography of the epidermis. From there, the possibilities of portraying a fully-fledged person are endless."
On May 16th 2013, Toyin had her solo exhibit at the Jack Shainman Gallery in NYC. It was on that day that I decided to be open and invite everyone on my journey. I saw myself in her creations and it encouraged me to concentrate on the geography of my own soul, my existense, and my expansion as a human being and an artist. It is truly a blessing to have such a talented soul exist in this world. All in all, she is my hero.
“My dream started by seeing Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show,” says Mock. “I wanted to be her; I wanted to be beautiful, be successful, and maybe have a great family and a brownstone in Brooklyn.” As she explained in her contribution to the “It Gets Better” project, “My gender was my very first ‘This I know for sure’ moment, as Oprah likes to call it.”
The Peculiar Kind’s 3rd episode of the second season focuses on LGBT Homeless youth.
Meet Claudio, a homeless 20 something living in NYC by way of Michigan. He has a little of advice for other LGBT homeless youth.
"It’s like when someone walks up to me, they say um ‘well, why don’t you just get a job’. Ya know we’re so far apart in conciousness, he can’t even see me… You have to rebuild yourself psychologicaly before you can just walk into some establishment… - Claudio
Episode NO. 3 coming soon (Thanks for your patience.)
