Speqtrum is just that - it's community, it's friends, you know. It's hard to say that one time specifically I felt connected to the community. Because Speqtrum in itself is community. With all of Covid and stuff it's been hard because there's been a lot of, like, disconnect from those friends in that community. I mean, Speqtrum has helped me with a lot of things like my social anxiety. Since everything that has been going on I realized how bad it actually is and how much the groups like Speqtrum actually did to help me. So, I mean, I guess anytime Speqtrum meets up I feel connected.

Umm I chose the pieces I did because they are the ones I am most proud of. The home one and the dress were school assignments. The guy laying down there wasn't much thought that went into it just never really drew a guy before so I drew a trans guy …

Being here, being able to be part of Speqtrum and being able to help advocate for those who might feel like there isn't a space for them or there isn't a place that they can feel safe and, like, they're valid is extremely important.
