101. Travis Alabanza - Everyone's trans
Sofie talks to artist Travis Alabanza about being black and trans and gender-non-conforming, making up for lost time fashion-wise, how the outside world tells you how to be, pronouns and fitting into boxes, growing up poor, an abusive relationship with the internet, how minority artists are politicised as 'activists’, who deserves vulnerability, oppression making the oppressed two-dimensional, the urge to be desired, perfection, trans people editing themselves in public and the bonding power of honesty.
