About this submission

Trans love is earnestness, play, specificity, and the rejection of the dominant understanding of love as competition, performance, or violence. Trans love creates hidden, intimate, supportive spaces within a hostile world that views trans beauty as something to fetishize, invade, and destroy. Trans love is opacity.

t4t ("trans for trans") is a site-specific video installation located in a high-traffic, high-visibility public area. However, the area beneath the monitor is secluded and intimate; to see the 36-minute film, the audience must trespass upon this private trans space, kneeling, clambering, and squeezing their bodies into submissive positions in full public view.
