tired of being a token?

As a black queer artists sometimes I'm invited to events to tick a box, meet a diversity quota or to provide a distraction from institutional inequalities that are going unchecked. It's much easier to invite a brown face in for the day than it is to invest the time and effort it takes to tackle institutional racism, but frankly I'm tired of being the greatful token. I'm tired of my visibility being used to make other problems invisible. Many women, LGBTQI, disabled people and POC know all to well how it feels to be the only non white, cis, able bodied male at an event especially those events which claim to champion diversity or tackle inequalities. It feels uncomfortable, so let's share that uncomfortbable feeling in the hopes it might encourage change by sporting one of these slick 'TOKEN' jumpers. inevitably most of us will have to navigate spaces that are dominated by cis white men but we should not have to feel complicit in their lack of diversity. Academia, the Art world, Fashion, Cinema and the Musuc industry are but a few areas where disabled people, POC, LGBTI folk and women have to work much harder to reach the same positions as men and are often invited in as an after thought. This jumper as well as being a pretty sweet adition to your wardrobe says "I'm here, but I don't want to be the only one here. "

So far I printed 16 jumpers for friends who requested them but I hope to raise enough money to make lots more in all sizes. If you donate £25.00 or over and attach a note with your preferred size and address I will post your jumper once I reach my target.

Thank you and please share
