My designed PRIDE award 2021 commissioned by Omroep Avro Tros.
The Pride Award is a black trans woman. This referee I to the black trans, queer and lesbian women who already had a leadership role before and during the Pride protests in America. The face of the LGTBQIA+ movement is still (too) often a white cis man. In conversations about Pride, there is insufficient attention to the origin and the movement started by black people. I hope to be able to honor them with this and that they will never be forgotten.
The episode can now be watched via NPO – a special #pride broadcast in which Splintr talks to Jessie Maya, Shary An, Tim den Besten and Edson da Graca.
