Title: ¡Mujeres Divinas y Poderosas! is a Digital Mural Project celebrating #LuchaTransLatina. 

We are honored to partner once again with YBCA’s In Community Program to present our latest installment of our Digital Mural Project (DMP) Residency Series, featuring artist Lexx Valdez and El/La Para Translatinas. 

The DMP Residency Series aims to connect local social service organizations, artists and the public with our historical billboard to address and respond to important civic issues. DMP is a public art project that explores the direct linkage between creative activity and community building, the potential “uses” of artwork in a social context, and the role of the artist as a public citizen. In celebration of PRIDE and in support of their advocacy efforts, we have partnered with El/La Para Translatinas to ignite dialogue and understanding about the issues faced by the Translatina community and beyond. We stand with El/La and ask you to join us in support at their upcoming June/July programs.

About El/La Para Translatinas: Founded in 2006, El/La is a holistic support organization for transgender women of Latin American decent. By building a collective vision where transwomen are empowered to stand up against violence, abuse and discrimination; its mission to promote the survival and improve the quality of life of translatinas in the San Francisco Bay Area is realized. Thus, creating a space where translatinas are loved, valued and supported in self-determination. Visit their website to lean more.

About Lexx Valdez: Valdez grew up in Guadalupe, CA, a coastal town at the Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo County line but she’s lived in the Bay Area since 2004 and considers it home. She now lives in Oakland’s San Antonio neighborhood where she shares creative space with her Townhaus Studios mate, Scott La Rockwell of Rockwell Creative. Dedicated to healing and transformation through the creative process, Lexx believes in designing cyclically for collective growth and sustainability. She studied at the Academy of Art, San Francisco, and in previous design lives, has been the Creative Director at Beats Rhymes and Life, Inc. (BRL), Art Director at Missomnimedia.com, co-founder of the Daughters of D.I.G.—Developing Intelligent Girls—project, and has freelanced for ArtDontSleep, Los Angeles, Alameda Health Care Services Agency, California Endowment‘s Sons & Brothers Campaign, Community Health Resource Center, San Francisco, the Roy Ayers Project and 70×30.com. Lexx’s collage art and curating skills have been displayed at Betti Ono Gallery in downtown Oakland (“My Art, My Culture,” March 2013 collaboration with Daughters of D.I.G. and 70×30.com).

About YBCA In Community: Is a new, community-based arts-making program that pairs professional artists with community members in various neighborhoods around the Bay Area—such as SOMA, the Mission District, the Excelsior District, and West Oakland. The program connects low-income, ethnically diverse, underserved community members; neighborhood organizations; and individual artists around collaborative art-making projects that address the unique needs and cultural traditions of each neighborhood. Each project is designed to reinforce cultural connectivity and community healing, and ultimately change how participants see their lives and the world around them.

At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?

Parent of a female teen whose school banned leggings

#yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators

(via meetingsinthedesert)

^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)

This parent is right.  The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers.  Have I got that right? (rhetorical)
