San Francisco mural honors transgender activists — see before it gets tagged over

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — This is such a cool project deserving of wider exposure, even though this type of art is lacking in permanence — but then, that’s part of the mystique. If I were anywhere near SF, I’d go down and take a look-see.

Artist Tanya Wischerath painted the mural of 4 trans activists; Mia Tu Mutch, Alexis Rivera, Janetta Louise-Johnson, and Tamara Chingover, in 9 days — just in time for the Clarion Alley Block Party. Clarion Alley is known for street art and community activities. It is located between Mission and Valencia Streets and 17th and 18th Streets.

(If anyone wants to help me match names to the photos, leave a comment below and I’ll add them.)

  1. Nice to see ! if those of us want public recognition and respect we need more of this, but in my mind what we need are more trans elected officals to move the government. Second we need to keep moving towards public education and lastly each of us in this transcommunity needs to understand we are all being looked at under a microscope and for those of us that drean if becomming a different gender, we need to act like the ladies we dream of becomming, not like clowns or perverts.

  2. This is awesome! I only wish I would be in S.F. in time to see it! Mia is a great representative as was Alexis, she is missed greatly! I would respond to Christy Ann, but I don’t feel it is my right to judge anyone in our community.

  3. The photo in the middle is of Alexis Rivera. What a wonderful way to commemorate our role models.
