"It would be a mistake to promote the idea that I am a woman against veiling or pro-veiling. The veil is more profound. more complicated. I’m interested in the veil and the notion of boundary—how physically when a woman is embraced with fabric, her sexual, psychological, political, emotional relationship to the outside world changes."

TransParent is a film about the life Shelly “Treasure” Hilliard, a Detroit 19-year-old girl, beloved by her family and friends. TransParent is a film about Shelly’s murder, about a hate crime that wasn’t prosecuted as one. TransParent is about the struggle to forgive. TransParent is about Detroit. TransParent is about projections and perceptions and communities misrepresented and misunderstood. TransParent is about incredible beauty and horrific violence. TransParent is about a grieving mother and her commitment to honor her daughter, Treasure.

I really want to see this. Donate, if you can.

"I have folded my sorrows into the mantle of summer night,
Assigning each brief storm its alloted space in time,
Quietly pursuing catastrophic histories buried in my eyes.
And yes, the world is not some unplayed Cosmic Game,
And the sun is still ninety-three million miles from me,
And in the imaginary forest, the shingles hippo becomes the gay unicorn."
