Angel’s Boot

Angel’s Boot is a public, effected intervention that took place in Washington, DC in July 2018. The work was a collaboration between Danyele Brown (effect designer), Ms. Monyea (curator and performer), and High Definition Exposure (DC-based multimedia collective, comprised of Tony Bush and Josh Peoples). The work sought to queer a counter-klan rally organized by the community of southeast DC through experimental embodiment of trans-utilitarianism. Our collective process rejected isolated/discrete theory pertaining to transwomen/transfemmes getting love in the hood (e.g. ‘realness’, formal gender education, etc), in order to recenter a long history of transfeminine organizing in Chocolate City.
