About Dorian Blue

As featured in WETA, MetroWeekly, the Washington Blade, and the PPMW Campaign #MyBodyMyCare: Dorian Blue is a powerful storyteller, a fearless visual artist, and the supreme master of their own fate. Following their spotlight as an established storyteller and an emerging artist in the June Episode of WETA Arts, Dorian Blue continues to defy the bounds of what is possible through every aspect of their work within the DC Metro Area. In 2019 alone, Dorian Blue’s work to amplify the voices of queer and trans folx of color has been exponential. At the inaugural May Is Trans Art Exhibition, their featured pieces from Blueboy Photography offered a stunning gaze on queer and trans identity. As of July 2019, their powerful visual art pieces have been featured in the Washington Blade, Metro Weekly, and WETA Arts. As a spokesperson for the Planned Parenthood Metropolitan Washington campaign, Dorian Blue advocates for the importance of gender-affirming care that centers autonomy and choice at every step. Following the launch of this regional campaign, Dorian Blue discussed dynamics of transgender identity, nonbinary genders, social euphoria, and bodily autonomy as a trans advocate on the Khatnip podcast.Beyond their work as a transgender spokesperson and powerful visual artist, Dorian Blue continues to give back to their community as a grassroots organizer and storytelling consultant. As a resume coach for the Create Your History project, Dorian Blue consults LGBTQ youth facing homelessness and job insecurity within the District of Columbia. As a co-founder of Interdependence DMV, Dorian Blue utilizes their background in community organizing to build a dynamic resource exchange that centers the needs of queer, trans, black, and PoC creators. Following their work in 2017 as a Racial Justice Fellow, and their subsequent work on the Through Word of Mouth documentary project, Dorian Blue has utilized storytelling to empower and uplift the voices of queer and trans creators and activists who are left on the margins. Through your support as a patron, your monthly contributions directly impact a queer + trans + black creator that is committed to building a more sustainable, creative, and inclusive world.
