TWOCC was established almost one year ago after the brutal murder of Islan Nettles, a black trans woman in New York City. Since then we have brought visibility to this case and uplifted the narratives of struggle and resilience from our communities. From our multiple appearances at conferences, to our various talks, and our numerous accountability sessions we have created a new space for trans women of color leadership in the movement.
We are an organizing collective, NOT a registered non-profit. We rely on grassroots fundraising to sustain the work. Trans women of color have historically — and continue to — put our bodies on the line for justice. The amount of unpaid emotional, physical, and psychological labor we do for our movements is astronomical. We are tired of the lip service that our allies give to trans women of color issues. We believe that the role of allies in our movement is to fund us so that we can do the work for ourselves! This is a fundraising campaign lead by allies to support our work. We need YOUR change, to make our own!
Got to bring Rai to the Japanese Garden in AZ this year, it was so perfect for him! He fit right into the beautiful scenery. I always enjoy my annual trip there, it is so zen! We suited for over an hour, watching the koi fish and relaxing.

I like to imagine what Vocaloid/Miku would have been like in the 80s or 90s (design wise) so here’s a doodle! Might do other Vocaloids, who knows! Let me know if you’d like to see it
still can’t seem to pull off the style, but I’m learning :) I think this leans more towards 80s though
excuse the feet!
