About Bad Flower
Bad Flower Productions
I am an artist, catalyst, and cheerleader. Because of my passion for helping queer and trans folks manifest and hone their creative projects and dreams, and because I know that our voices are essential in this world, I decided to create Bad Flower Productions.
Besides being an artist/musician, I am a transgender Mestizo who grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and now live in San Francisco, CA. I came out as a dyke at the age of 15 and now identify as a queer man. The name, Bad Flower comes from the term mal-flor, which is a derogatory Spanish-slang term for dyke or lesbian. When I first heard the term mal-flor, I immediately identified with and reclaimed it, in the same spirit as taking back words like 'dyke' and 'queer.' To sum up my motivation: There are a lot of Bad-ass Flowers out there, and I want to help them blossom.
Although not exclusively, Bad Flower Productions aims to support and promote queer and transgender artists
of color and mixed race heritage.
