PRISM is a somatic and cartographical project that aims to amplify the work of Black, Brown, and Indigenous Kentuckians who are also Queer, Trans, 2-Spirit, and Non-binary. Five storytellers across the state used their bodies and lived experiences as maps to explore concepts of gender expansiveness, self-possession, and culture revitalization in the midst of historical and ongoing genocidal campaigns against our right to create a legacy. PRISM is an energetic footprint in the form of prose, poetry, visual art and the personal narrative. Each side of this pentahedronic force is an emblem of liberation in the active tense.
