Philadelphia Murals Project Unveils First Wall Celebrating Transgender People

Philadelphia unveiled its first mural celebrating transgender and gender-nonconforming people last week. The mural, “We Are Universal,” was created by the artist Kah Yangni in collaboration with the residents of Morris Home, the only residential recovery program in the country that offers services specifically for trans people, according to its website. Some of the residents’ quotes are included on the mural, which reads, “we’re trans,” “we’re survivors,” “we are joyful,” “we feel rage” and “we are universal!”
