Over the past decade I’ve photo-documented and witnessed first hand rapid changes in our precious #queercommunity but there’s certain things that sure doesn’t seem like it’s changing, suicide being a piece of that. Bryn Kelly was a creative powerhouse and one heck of a gorgeous goddess. Her intensity was so palpable to me when I photographed her, I loved it. On January 13th, 2016 Bryn Kelly killed herself, much to the shock of so many in the #lgbtqcommunity . Bryn’s memorial was held on February 7, 2016, heartbroken community members filled St John the Divine’s in #NYC, front to the very last pew.
I’m posting these photos intentionally on #wcw because Bryn crushed it in music, activism, the arts, fashion, mentoring trans women who were new to transitioning or writing & zine making and... she crushed it at pure talent! I have no doubt her amazingness embodied many more outlets than I can possibly list. It’s evident our community is still grappling with her loss, god knows it sure was felt when I was covering #anothercountry , the queer #country #musicfestival this past summer.—————————————————————

Myself & @__bryn_____ /#brynkelly on stage at the first #gayoleopry in Brooklyn. This weekend is the anniversary of #brynkelly choosing to explore what comes after this consciousness. At the time I could never imagine being able to find any light in such darkness. Being able to read all of your responses & feels yesterday that y’all are having for the zine helped. This project started out as a memorial zine, to help work through grief for a group of friends. Thanks to you, it’s become so much more.
Through our combined social media we get to connect with 36K queers that call home below the #masondixon everyday. We’ve been able to donate money to @ignitekindred, #j20defencefund, @folksouth, @translifeline and many of your crowdfunding campaign‘s. We have raised $30,300.00 to print our zine. Of that $20,000.00 will go back to you through community micro grants. I’m so grateful to y’all for creating a space where this work can be done in Bryn’s memory. Bryn left us with some departing wisdom (2nd Slide) on her last Facebook post before heading to the stars, let’s be kind to one another (& ourselves). Rural HIV positive trans woman, I see you, I read every email, you are not alone. “– YOU HAVE TIGER BLOOD AND ADONIS DNA –

@kandthesorrows new record comes out today and if you don't buy or stream it you are seriously missing out! I just ordered myself a copy of The Narrow Place on vinyl from their band camp. They're seriously one of my favorite bands. Go get it!! I'm so honored to be a part of their release party next month where I'll be playing keys for the legendary Lavender Country. In honor of their release day here's a picture of us from the Gay Ole Opry tour last year when I had short hair and Tami and Karen were fed up with my selfie antics. Congrats on the new album!! Love you guys! ❤🌈

New album fm @kandthesorrows #karenandthesorrows Friday! #TheNarrowPlace #comingsoon to our #podcast. #queercountry #gayoleopry Ode to #brocountry that just might make you rethink the appeal of painted on #daisydukes by the lake. 🤔

Just found this action shot of me singing as #patsycline @steersandqueersparty The Gay Ole Opry last Thursday at the Great Hall. Thank you so much to everyone who came out and to my lovely band @bigtobaccodrums @seanclarkmaclean and Alex for playing with me, having my back and making it all come together so beautifully. #countrystyle #staycoal

A day for love. Happy Pride! #gayoleopry

Last night was so magical that I thought I would post just one more picture of the amazing @retroretro playing the banjo at #steersandqueers #gayoleopry #allysinchaynes #talentedfriends #magicalevening

Thank you to @seanclarkmaclean for ducking out of work and playing the bass like a boss last night! Super grateful that it all came together the way it did.

Watching @retroretro play the banjo and sing Wagon Wheel made my life complete. Love this magical creature so much!! #gayoleopry #steersandqueers #allysinchaynes #playedthebanjo #mindblown #talentedfriends #staycoal #paigeturnerspreservation

This picture is everything!! I couldn't be happier than I was tucked away in a corner Bobby and Shane.
