Spectrum Center Presents: Transgender Awareness Week Keynote Speaker -- Kama La Mackerel

Please register at: https://bit.ly/LGBTQ-UM-Events

On the occasion of Transgender Awareness Week and the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, the U-M Spectrum Center presents Kama La Mackerel​, a multiracial trans artist based in Montreal, QB. Their work is grounded in the exploration of justice, love, healing, decoloniality and self- and collective-empowerment. Kama’s artistic practice spans across textile, visual, poetic, digital, and performative work; their work is at once narratological and theoretical, at once personal and political. They will be highlighting their most recent work, ZOM-FAM.
