In an attempt to practice radical empathy Mx Justin Vivian Bond is stepping out of their liberal champagne bubble and venturing on a cultural fact finding mission across the world. Sticking with their credo, “Keep it Pretty, Keep, it Shallow, Keep it Moving,” Mx Bond asks, “Why alienate when you can infiltrate?”

Share thoughts, ideas and world views with this trans-genre phenomenon and as they explore what common links we can enjoy with the right social lubricants and musical interludes but never forget, “Glamour is Resistance!”
