This year to celebrate Women’s History Month I decided I wanted to create a series of paintings of influential Trans women. With the laws being passed around the United States right now, it felt particularly important to honor our Trans elders.


I also wanted to support the LGBT+ individuals currently in Ukraine. 60% of the proceeds of these original pieces will be donated to Insight Ukraine. I really do wish I could donate 100% of the proceeds but I am not at a point where I am able to eat the cost of these prints and shipping them. Maybe someday! 


Aleshia Brevard (1937 - 2017)   is best known for her role as Giganta in the television special 'Legends of the Superheroes'. She had quite a wide career, appearing in television, theater productions, and movies, as well as getting her start as a Marilyn Monroe impersonator.


Wikipedia states that "Brevard began her transition at 21 under the care of famed gender specialist Harry Benjamin in the late 1950s,"  which included her receiving one of the first sex reassignment surgeries in the United States. (Wikipedia)

Dimensions: 6 x 9-inch or 15.2 x 22.9 cm
