The Arts Center presents

Trystan Reese @ The Whiteside Theatre

Trystan shares his  story of life, family and transition with us. 

Trystan Reese sprang into the public consciousness in 2017 when he decided to tell his trans pregnancy story in the mainstream media. He and his partner, Biff, are also the adoptive parents of Biff’s biological niece and nephew. They are proud to have expanded the public conversation about trans reproductive justice, queer families, and what it means to be a father. He regularly tells the unique story of his family’s creation to audiences across the country. 

He is the Director of Family Formation at Family Equality Council, a national nonprofit dedicated to supporting LGBTQ+ families and those who wish to form them.

Kristi Quillen, Poetry Intern

Bio:

Kristi Quillen is an MFA in creative writing/poetry candidate at Oregon State University. She is interested in the interplay of visual art and the written word, which she explores through writing poetry in response to artwork and through letterpress and book art forms. Before moving to Corvallis, she was an editor at a sustainability magazine, a Peace Corps volunteer, a teacher trainer and mentor, and a high school literature teacher. She enjoys spending time in forests around Corvallis and is often inspired by trees, mosses, and lichen, which appear in her poems.

The Arts Center is excited to have Kristi as a writing intern for 2019, creating connections between the written word and visual art. Her poem, You Can, was created in conjunction with the Art of Being an Artist exhibit.
