About birdie Watkins
As a trans-man, I have gone through several stages in life. I transitioned within my family from a child to an adult, came out as gay, and finally accepted my own truth and began my transition into the man I always knew I was. I come from a family that doesn’t understand me and in addition to that, we live in a world that remains far from accepting. Art for me has always been my outlet for coping with the challenges the universe has thrown at me.
My story is no better or worse, no harder or easier than anyone else’s, but through art, I am able to let go. Art allows me to release whatever it is that I am working through or feeling at the time and truly allow people to get a look at who I really am. Every piece of art is created with a bit of my soul. Pain, love, defeat, success, every person, every experience, and all of the past trauma endured is what inspires what I do.
