THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — This is a provactive art project that even I don’t quite fully grasp. Yet, I urge you to check out the video and photos. The artist is a (born female) trans person who has yet decided whether to take hormones or have SRS. Her work challenges society’s perception of gender and who we are inside our bodies. I think its cool when trans artists force society to rethink the labels they’ve foisted on us!
“Heather Cassils one of those people, a true punk with the kind of fearlessness that most biological men wish they were born with.” (From the Huffington Post)
