Hi! I'm Basil (yes, like the herb.) I am a man of transgender experience, writer, photographer, intersectional activist and Southerner. I am the founder and Executive Director at Transilient. I have been published in numerous publications in print and online. I majored in Creative Writing at The New School with a concentration in poetry. For me, capturing light is everything in photography and life! As a man of mixed media, it is always the light that I bring into any form of my art. I strive to convey the sense of hope light embodies by capturing it and sharing it in accessible ways.
