At 11:35 artist Ryan Wilks joins us to discuss, “Gender Treason” his new project of documenting the various realities of queer persons living in Kansas City through interviews that are being photographed, recorded, transcribed, and painted in oils. Upon completion of each interview Ryan is transcribing key elements, to be printed and framed next to a large scale oil painting created by Ryan of each person interviewed. Ryan explains that “The aspiration of this project is to tell the story of Queer Kansas City, to convey relatable humanity despite vast differences, and to help the public bond with both common and uncommon struggles and victories.” Ryan will complete 12 portraits and transcribed interviews.
