“According to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), more than half of transgender male teens reported attempting suicide in their lifetime—this harrowing statistic struck me greatly and prompted me to create this piece. Suffocating was created with the struggles of trans and non-binary folx in mind, with the intention of increasing their visibility and representation in the artistic realm.”
