Transday of Remembrance

Updated: Jan 8, 2019



I want to apologise for not updating this blog more often, I have no excuses (#procastinate).

The process of sitting down and writing it's always a bit extenuating for me, I tend to get very emotional and lose track of what I wanted to write originally and end up closing even before finishing. I have to say that I've been thinking about writing an update for a long time now, so hopefully you'll feel a bit less neglected.


I have moved to Australia, Melbourne, a few months back. I needed to move away from Edinburgh for all sorts of reasons, also I wanted to test my own artistic practice and see how it will stand in international waters. I have to admit it has been proven quite hard, but I'm not a quitter, and I do love a good challenge.


Why hard? Well, it's not easy to project yourself in a complete new creative environment without any network and starting from scratch. I'm trying to be wise and resourceful but there's a certain amount of work that it's actually just down to be in the right place at the right time, but I'm trying to be everywhere so that I can hopefully get some chances.


DIS-CONNECTED is premiering at the Butterfly Club on the 16th of January, which I'm really proud and happy for.

I have also started to meet interesting people, but most importantly I'm learning a lot about my self and my own work and PARTICULARLY that I have 0 patience and a damned perfectionist.


So far so good, the weather is getting warmer by the minute (which is incredibly nice, so far) I am getting involved with the queer community here and I can't wait to do more things. My path to advocacy is getting more and more defined.


Speaking about advocacy, today I attended the Transday of Remembrance, which it was very very emotional. It's a day where the lives and identities of those part of trans community that have been killed by acts of violence get commemorated. (I did a blog post about it a while back). I own my very life to the trans community, their existence made me question the cult I was stuck in, their lives made me realise the cruelty of organised religions and those who proclaim to follow them, their struggle gave me the strength to fight my own personal battle towards freedom. I acknowledge their pain as my own, their fight as a similar one that I had to face and that I'm still facing. So thank you, thank you for being who you are, I don't have anything else than promising that I will be fighting for creating a world where we can be who we are, without being branded imperfect or innatural or freaks or human waste. I'll be fighting for a new society where no one will decide who we are, other than ourselves.

Dear reader, take a moment to go through the names that follow, not as a list but as individual lives of people which crime was to just be themselves, that they have been killed for their identity, and these are the only ones we know of, I commemorate all those ones that unfortunately have been lost and erased too.

What can you do about it? Start by being an ally, stop the trans jokes, avoid saying "your opinion" based on an experience that has nothing to do with yours. Don't judge, but rather support and fight for those who can't. In your small, if you hear/see anyone abusing report it to the police. We can do plenty to make next year list smaller, it starts with acknowledging and validating their existence. It start with us.


Lots of love,


Andy 💙
