Archivo de la Memoria Trans is a cultural space founded by María Belen Correa, for the protection, construction and vindication of the Argentine Trans Memory.
Archivo de la Memoria Trans brings together the images and stories of trans women over 50 years, preserving the memory of those who suffered abuse by the police, the abandonment of the State and the hostility of the society that attended, indolently, a silent genocide.
This graphic material is part of the communication designed for a documentary series directed by Agustina Comedi and Mariana Bomba. In the key of a documentary essay, the series is structured through four axes, each one featuring one of them: they tell us about carnival, affections, exile and organization; and, through their personal experiences, they open the door for us to understand the reality of an entire community.
Cintia, Edith, María Belén and Trachyn survived. They share the intimacy and complexity of those who faced injustice and pain with humor and creativity, but also with organization and community.
Archivo de la Memoria Trans is an archive that resists oblivion and silence, a chosen family that meets in an act of memory and resistance.
