  • Poster/Print

    Beautiful light blue paper with subtle (yet readeable!) Gillian Frances print in white ink. The print was made by LA-based artist and musician Franz Murder, and features lyrical content from Gillian Frances' upcoming album, "Miles Away From Myself." The poster itself was screen-printed by Paul Frunzi, Anacortes-based musician and visual artist. 13"x18"

    The EP includes 4 tracks by Gillian Frances. The first track is a cover of a well-known Pearl Jam song, "Better Man." The other three tracks are a part of Gillian Frances' full-length album (which will be released in full by the end of summer!) "Friend" is a new single, and "New Bones" and "Lake" are additional songs that have already been released but not within this collection.

    Any funds raised (aside from a small amount for shipping of the poster) will be sent over to For The Gworls, an organization that raises money for Black trans people's rent and affirmative surgeries. Thank you for your support of my art and, more importantly, for your support of the Black trans community.

Friend 04:21
we have spent our years together holding and fighting for space lost and alone, i was back then together we found our place but now i must move ahead, without you in the drivers' seat for a love so easy and a heart so free your self image bested by your heart lost in a battle of false starts now i watch as my friends turn away putting up their nose to what i say do you think you know who i am speak to me we are falling back again

about

Black trans folks are some of the most vulnerable people in our communities today. Including Merci Mack, who was found murdered on Tuesday, June 30th in Dallas, TX , there have been 18 murders of trans/gender non-conforming people this year—and that is only what has been reported. The reported list of murdered trans/gender non-conforming people, majority of whom are BIPOC, is long, but here I type their names so that you can say them with me:

Dustin Parker (age 25)
Neulisa Luciano Ruiz
Yampi Mendez Arocho (age 19)
Monika Diamond (age 34)
Lexi (age 33)
Johanna Metzger
Serena Angelique Velázquez Ramos (age 32)
Layla Pelaez Sánchez (age 21)
Penélope Díaz Ramírez
Nina Pop
Helle Jae O’Regan (age 20)
Tony McDade
Dominique “Rem'mie” Fells
Riah Milton (age 25),
Jayne Thompson (age 33)
Selena Reyes-Hernandez (age 37)
Brayla Stone (age 17)
Merci Mack (age 22).

It breaks my heart that the world we are living in is filled with so much hatred and fear of ‘the other.’ May we continue to say their names, mourn their lives taken far too early, and work to support the Black trans/gender non-conforming people in our communities and around the country. May we collectively work to change the difficult reality that so many of our friends, loved ones and community members live in (and that many of us, as white people, will never truly understand). Please join me in sending support and love, by way of financial security, to some of the most vulnerable members of our community. For The Gworls is an organization that provides funds to Black trans people’s rent and affirmative surgeries. For The Gworls provides security to the vulnerable, and that is why I have chosen to support them.

The details of the fundraiser are as follows: I am selling my EP for $5, with the hopes that you will be able to offer more than that, but $5 is great if that is what you can afford. I am selling hand-printed posters for $20. Shipping the posters will costs roughly $8, so be sure to take that into account when paying. I will be doing this fundraiser throughout the month of June on my Bandcamp page, and any funds that are collected (aside from shipping fees and Bandcamp fees) will be sent directly to For The Gworls. I am aiming to raise 500$ this month. Please help me achieve that goal.
