Who Is She?

Tiffany St. Bunny is a tall, long-hair butch trans woman that was born and raised in rural Oklahoma, receiving her BA from Oklahoma State, before moving to Bloomington, Indiana to complete her MA. Using frameworks she developed in her Cultural Geography studies, she became an organizer within the Trans Justice movement, but more importantly, she became a photographer/documentarian of the queer/trans community that she inhabits. She currently lives and works in Oakland, CA where she creates work based on her experiences growing up poor, queer, and trans in the rural South/Southwest. Thematically, her body of work sabotages traditional symbols of patriarchy, masculinity, and manhood. Landscapes, ideas, and brands monopolized and weaponized by the straight, white, all-american man are wrenched from the security of their hegemonic grasp by hypergender(ed)(less) homos. The “Sacred Rural Masculine” is forcibly perverted, and the resultant decadent divinity is (re)claimed, paving a path towards a place of healing and beauty.

 

She is a resident artist at Eternal Return, and her current projects include Truckslutsmag, Western Springs, and Eternal/Endless. Creating a lasting visual archive of her radical queer and trans freak family is the foundational underpinning of her artistic practice.
