The TSA Threat Crop Top
This shirt is e v e r y t h i n g.
Throw a middle finger to institutionalised racism, Islamophobia, sexism, and all the other bullshit!
As someone who has been detained at airports (even as a kid), without access to a phone, my passport, just waiting for someone to tell me I'm free to go - the injustice of being a TSA "threat" has made me fume with anger. Don't get mad though, get even. Why am I threatening? Because I'm brown? Because I'm Afghan? Because I speak out against these injustices and fight back? Cool, those are three aspects of myself that I love, nurture and am super proud of. Thus, I am proud of being a TSA Threat.
Main Image, Model: Astra, goes by either “Takes Photos” or “Pentaxia” for a last name. She identifies primarily as an artist, which encompasses photography and music under one magical umbrella. My friends, my community and my surroundings are my family, and the only home I have a pull towards is the universe. I shoot on film because I love its’ inherent challenges, and I'm in love with minimal house that emphasizes the offbeat and/or polyrhythms. I always want to press buttons.
