Where

Reminders: was born at Positive Images, a nonprofit organization that has been supporting young adults in Sonoma County since 1990.

In the fall of 2018, Positive Images established a social/support space for adults aged 20-40. Since then there has been a monthly discussion group for trans folks, which was rather accidentally named the Trans Resilience Group.

Trans Resilience

By framing the group as a resilience group (which, we are intrinsically doing resilience work), we have put focus on the ways we grow from our challenges, in addition to venting about them. This led to us noticing some common themes in our struggles. We have noticed that, across a variety of identities, many of us share a lot of the same insecurities.

In response to those shared insecurities, we made a list of reminders for ourselves, which has since morphed into this project.

Ms. Andry is usually up to her elbows in suds, but took a break to draw us the "you are worthwhile" page. Go buy some soap from Ms. Andry's Bath House, or maybe a t-shirt reminder that patriarchy needs smashing?
