About

LaFemmeBear is creating music on her own terms, and doing it her own way.  As a Black trans woman, musician, producer, singer/emcee/song writer, and sound engineer, LaFemmeBear is disrupting the music industry with her do it all approach, sharp craft, and fierce message of self-love and empowerment for the highly melanated trans and queer loved ones, with work that is making waves, and gaining recognition across the industry.   

Fresh off her headlining tour at Utah Pride and her first video "Shut UP!" making a featured appearance on BillBoard, LaFemmeBear is not content to stop there.  So here we are, raising funds to make her next music video "IF" as the second installment of a three video series representing her EP "Blaq: A Note to the world"  

We are really excited to get production under way, and just need a little bit of your help to get us there! We are scheduled to shoot at the end of July and would need to raise $2500.00 dollars to pay the costs for a film crew, make up artists, art director, talent, craft services, and location costs. 

And this is where you come in! We need your support to make this happen, and feel that this is an amazing opportunity for you to support the work of a Black trans artist on the heels of Pride month, and on the cusp of big things! Please take this opportunity to step up and help us make our goal! 

Risks and challenges

As queer and trans media creators, the challenge has always been there for us to break through into mainstream culture because of transphobia and industry gatekeeping that seeks to maintain the status quo. We seek to break through these barriers and give Queer and Trans People of Color visibility models and visions of a future full of possibilities as artists and media makers.

We are also seeking to hire and pay an all trans and queer cast and crew if possible, and your funding will allow us to give opportunities to more marginalized folks looking to gain some experience and credit.
