Tre'vell Anderson

Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

In 2023 alone, journalist, podcaster, and author Tre’vell Anderson published their first and second books — We See Each Other: A Black, Trans Journey Through TV & Film and Historically Black Phrases: From ‘I Ain’t One of Your Lil’ Friends’ to ‘Who All Gon’ Be There?’ Anderson also launched a limited podcast series based on their first book, titled We See Each Other: The Podcast alongside journalist Shar Jossell, which explores the histories and present realities of trans visibility.

“Through journalism and storytelling, I center those in the margins, gray spaces, and at the intersections of life. I’m correcting the record and shifting the historical focus. I’m claiming lineages and legacies.”

In the meantime, Anderson hosts two podcasts, FANTI (“to be a fan and anti, simultaneously”) and What a Day, which release new episodes weekly. They are also developing a social curation and media production house called Slayzhon to “develop independent projects and experiential events around Black movies.” This is a further expansion of Anderson’s current output of social content centering Black films, which started with the Instagram account @BlackMoviePosters.

In the face of so much anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric, Anderson has a direct message to the conservative forces who are challenging our equal rights: “Trans people have always been here, and we always will be.” @rayzhon
