Islan Nettles was out in New York City with friends when a group of young men approached her, learned she was a transgender woman and began taunting and maliciously beating her—right in front of a police precinct in Harlem.
”’I don’t think people should be shocked [at the death of Nettles],’ says Shelby Chestnut, codirector of community organizing and public advocacy for the New York Anti-Violence Project. ‘This happens more regularly than the media reports. We see this type of violence all the time.’”
”’Reporting violence helps end violence,’ says Chestnut. ‘Unless we know where violence is occurring, we can’t do outreach in the area. We can’t reach out to the general public know that anti-LGBT violence shouldn’t be tolerated.’”

First of all, sexy is all about perspective. Yes, she was lewd, and yes her form was not up to the standards the pop performers have set with all their years of experience. However, some people may have thought she was sexy with her “flat” feet and spaking of drag queens and the wagging of her tongue. She also could have been making a statement about what the pop culture is today and how she is perhaps trying to combat it. She could also be pulling a Brittany Spears. Either way, we’re giving her exactly what she wants, all the fucking attention (negative or positive). She stirred up one heck of a show.

Sean Heart is what I call a real urban artist. He uses typography, especially Impact to tell a story in a few words on a special place. We love his way of using the streets for his poems. Sean Heart describes hisself as a poet and his poetry is a weapon loaded with the future.
