Joy Yamusangie - Feeling Good

Yamusangie's fictional 'Feeling Good' club, celebrates their self expression, identity and evolving artist practice through Jazz.

"This imaginary club became a vision for me, a space that symbolised gender euphoria and speaks specifically to my own experience with understanding and celebrating my trans identity and my journey with learning music. I was inspired by the main character in the book Trumpet by Jackie Kay which I later learnt was based on the real life story of musician Billy Tipton. Thinking of how music, specifically Jazz, allowed both the fictional character and the real musician Billy to find a home for themselves." Joy Yamusangie
