Voices of Euphoria
Their art piece submission for Summit 2021 is a short film highlighting voices from the gender-diverse community sharing their experiences with Gender Euphoria. This project was inspired by panelist Kai Jacobsen who presented “Gender Euphoria: What Is It, And How Do We Get More of It?” Kai’s focus on euphoria hit home for Lexx as a trans person and made them realize that their journey after coming out focused on what made them feel dysphoric. They want more people to have the opportunity to discover chasing euphoria as an action to improve the mental health within our Two-Spirit, trans, and gender diverse community.
The idea of transforming the language we use in our lives and health care system is a great example that reflects Summit 2021’s theme, "Disrupt and Reconstruct.”
