Kim: Our love and our relationship is part of our advocacy. There isn't a lot of diverse representation of black queer couples loving each other and celebrating each others' bodies and beauty. We want to give an example to our communities. For many people involved with trans people, it's a hidden thing, and we want to challenge that narrative. There's nothing secret about the way we love each other: we love each other out loud.
Tiq: As people not tethered to an organization, we're constantly involved in our work. So we considered doing this shoot as part of our work because we want to be possibility models for other people.
