What comes after the storm? Peacock Rebellion presents a night of world-bending, future-shaping music, poetry, visual art, and more. Born out of resistance to pandemic bullshit and the constant erasure of trans people, What Remains reclaims trans women of color’s agency over our own stories. Get it, femme!
LeahAnn “Lafemmebear” Mitchell (she/her) is an independent music producer, sound engineer, and artist whose words and work have been featured in The Guardian, GLAAD, Queerty, Out.Tv Euro, Autostraddle, Billboard, and MTV. She has collaborated with Alice Sheppard and Disability Danceworks on their piece WIRED, as well as with PEG Records to co-write and produce the first mainstream Pop-R&B single “What You’re Looking For” for Peppermint of Rupaul’s Drag Race fame. She produced, arranged, and sang on a new version of Sounds of Blackness’s “Optimistic” with Peppermint and Mila Jam in honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance. Lafemmebear’s latest project “My Blaq Feels” is available on Bandcamp, and premiered live at Stanford University’s Black Love 2021 concert, where she opened for Chika. Additionally, she produced three tracks on Def Sound’s new album HUEM_N, also available on Bandcamp. Def Sound and Lafemmebear’s collaborative single “2Much” is currently a featured part of The Black Index, an exhibit curated by Bridget R. Cooks. She hopes the seeds she sows in her art will bear fruit to feed everyone.
KaiAnne Pepper (they/she) is a multidisciplinary artist whose art interacts with drag, music, the written word, and much more. Their artistic process includes a conversation facilitated through meditation which opens the lines of communication between their body, mind, and soul. Through these conversations, the realities of existence and experience derail the artistic form and practice to create living work. This process is an effort to release the stored trauma our bodies hold and transform it. The voice carried through this work is in fluid conversation with the conditions of a temporal body like race, mental health, (dis)ability, economic status, etc., and the limitless bounds of freedom dreaming. KaiAnne’s relationship to creating is closely related to identity, passion, pain, and love because art allowed them to challenge the boundaries imposed by society. By engaging with their work, they hope you create more opportunities to listen to your body with grace and healing.
Davia Spain is a musician and filmmaker particularly interested in exploring future world building, dimension hopping, and Afrofuturists theories of time. Her creative work has given her the opportunity to channel energies that are lacking in her surrounding environment. She hopes that by engaging in this process she will empower herself and those around her.
Ms. Billie Cooper is one of our bravest community advocates. She brings unapologetic wholeness of her Black, transgender, HIV positive, disabled veteran, cancer surviving experience. Co-founder of TransLife and many other community-centered initiatives, she was recently voted onto the Castro Cultural District Advisory Board. Her diaphragmatic verbal contributions blanket a space, instantly infusing heads and hearts with empathy and action. Ms. Billie has been described as present, aware and resilient. She gives no pause with making it perfectly clear that nothing is going to get in the way of her joy. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1958, sixty-two-year-old Ms. Cooper currently resides in San Francisco, motivating and advocating for underserved communities, where she says to continue planting her seeds of hope for another 62 years.
