Editor’s note from Coyote Park: “I am honored to hold these collective experiences that have cultural & personal significance. We as trans, nonbinary, 2spirit, and queer black, brown, indigenous, people of color have always been a bridge between worlds. To those of us that have had our worlds denied of us, treated as insignificant, or misconstrued: your dream of future, past, and present is alive and beautiful.i love you. Nooluemek’ 사랑해요 i will echo that love in every language my ancestors once spoke, & hope it translates into every language of yours.”
Special thanks to our community that keeps dreaming and the place where we dream together.
