LGBT artists, activists and allies are claiming a piece of South Florida’s cultural scene this month with an events series showcasing the works of local and national transgender painters, writers and filmmakers.Founder and organizer Aryah Lester, a poet and Miami Beach trans woman, says the 10 participating artists represent “a wide array of art such as painting, spoken word, poetry, couture, and design and writing.” TransArt founder Aryah Lester of Miami Beach conceived TransArt about six months ago, long before 1976 Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner revealed herself on the July cover of Vanity Fair and sparked an intense international discussion about transgender men and women.
