Re: “Intersectionality-focused series continues with Jahmal B. Golden

Rebecca - thank you for this very important and thoughtful interpretation/reflection on "Cage-free." Collaborating with Jahmal was an amazing and illuminating experience. This coverage elevates queer/trans (especially POC) voices about their realities in our community - beyond the people in the room at the event. Making them more visible and disrupting erasure.

Re: “To transform Rochester, two critical focus points

I believe our metropolitan community could be enhanced by these and other physical or economic projects, but unless our city sincerely (and with intention to disrupt and transform) addresses the status quo which includes unhealthy degrees of racism. poverty, segregation/exclusion, privilege/cronyism and corruption - all of the rest is moot. We will be on a regressive trajectory.

Re: “Art, ads, and the image we show to the world

I agree the art that was in the airport should be returned and I encourage more art, which is representative of more of Rochester to be added to the mix. Generic ads and a lack of master plan leave us vulnerable to the same impact as a strip mall. On several fronts, including with the lack of city or county Commissioner of Cultural Affairs and the paltry investment our community makes in art making and the creative industries, there is a disconnect between what we call ourselves and where/how we invest our resources. A little more than a year ago, a very credible study released by a think tank at SMU determined the Monroe County MSA is the 20th most vibrant in the country. Not only are we failing to leverage that strength, we are risking this sector's vitality in the future.
