Glori J. Tuitt (she/her) is a Brooklyn-based painter and illustrator whose work focuses on the intersections of race, religion and pop culture concerning the cultivation of identity. Dedicated to centering Black trans bodies in the arts, she has collaborated with many social justice organizations in order to return ownership of trans form to trans artists.
Tuitt will create murals that will shed light on both the historical and contemporary contributions of Black trans people in social justice and artistic movements in New York City. Her work will add a nuanced complexity to how the public is allowed to see Black trans people while creating spaces for Black trans people to see themselves. Her murals are anticipated to appear in Manhattan and Queens in July.
