While a few archives focusing on queer and transgender media exist, those archives primarily concern themselves with preserving history rather than contemporary media. With these limitations in mind, could there be a platform that preserves the contemporary creative expressions of transgender people? This project aims to create such a platform. To accomplish this goal, this project will take inspiration from existing queer and transgender archives to build a foundation of definitions, usage of terms, and methods of collection. From this foundation, this project will involve the creation of a website to host the new archive. Through this process, this project hopes to build a community of transgender people interested in exploring their identities through creative expression, helping them to become more familiar with their identities on their own terms while also enhancing research into transgender topics with their own voices.” font_container=”tag:h1|font_size:26|text_align:left|color:%236d6f71″ google_fonts=”font_family:Archivo%20Narrow%3Aregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_btn title=”Click here to explore TRANS STORIES” shape=”square” color=”white” align=”center” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-sign-out” add_icon=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Ftransstoriessite.wordpress.com%2F||target:%20_blank|” css=”.vc_custom_1652104156896{border-radius: 2px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”6774″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=”https://transstoriessite.wordpress.com/”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_separator color=”custom” border_width=”3″ accent_color=”#5bc0b2″][vc_btn title=”© Design Cultures & Creativity, 2022″ style=”classic” color=”white” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fdcc.umd.edu||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/5″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-envelope-o” color=”custom” align=”center” custom_color=”#2f4858″ link=”url:mailto%3Adcc-honors%40umd.edu|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-instagram” color=”custom” align=”center” custom_color=”#2f4858″ link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Finstagram.com%2Fumd_dcc||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-twitter” color=”custom” align=”center” custom_color=”#2f4858″ link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fumd_dcc|||”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
