FSA Mission Statement
Flawless Sabrina Archive’s mission is to preserve the lifework of Flawless Sabrina as a resource for artists, activists, and scholars. The research and documentation conducted by FSA will be used to incite intergenerational discourse for the benefit of current movements in the arts and politics. The collection will be regularly shown and made available to the public. It is the foundation of the organization’s expanding scope, inspiring future projects in order to continue the work of our namesake indefinitely. Flawless Sabrina Archive resides at the convergence of the past and present in countercultural subject matter, enriching society through the documentation of history and the empowerment of difference.
Trans and gender-non-conforming elders are culturally significant, and intergenerational community bonds progress personal, political, and artistic development with deeper historical context.
Flawless Sabrina is an elder still working hard today for the issues she has fought for artistically and politically since the 1950's. This archive is the materialization of her life's work, it is a collection of historical documents, personal writing, painting, sculpture, and photography that best represent her life and those she has known and loved over the years.
We are also methodically documenting Flawless' oral history through a series of recorded interviews. These recordings, in addition to the rest of the Flawless Sabrina Archive, will be used to produce a book to tell the story of the queen's incredible life, among other projects.
The collection is not only comprised of the queen's original work, it also includes personal and collaborative work by her contemporaries and friends. This aspect of the archive is significant because it speaks to Flawless' belief that our accomplishments are a result of a collective force, and not merely an individual's contribution.
There are many historically significant artists who Flawless has known, loved, and worked with over the decades. Their presence in FSA helps to contextualize the radical era within which much of this archive is from. John Waters, Divine, Norman Mailer, Holly Woodlawn, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Andy Warhol, and Diane Arbus are a few of the revolutionaries whose work is included in the Flawless Sabrina Archive.
This project is an important contribution to the untold history of LGBT America. It is a passage back in time to a country where cross-dressing was criminal, artists were renegade, and queer was smut. FSA will become an inspiration for future generations of LGBT people who are still battling the hurdles our community's elders have long sought to deconstruct. This collection serves as a public record documenting an influential queer artist's lifework from the 1950's through the turn of the 21st century until today.
Your contribution will help to fund the creation of this archive, continuing the lifework of Flawless Sabrina indefinitely. This fundraiser will help fund costs such as,
- Archival materials
- Cleaning supplies
- Archival time
With your help, our goal will be reached and there is no telling how far the Flawless Sabrina Archive can go. When this project is completed there are many avenues that can be taken to maximize it's scope. We intend to show this work once it is in presentable condition, and to find a home for it that will make it accessible for years to come.
FSA is thinking big, and would settle for nothing less for the one and only, deeply loved, grandmother to our community, Flawless Sabrina.
