The Pay It No Mind Artist Showcase, named in honor of Marsha “Pay it No Mind“ Johnson, was created to celebrate Trans and Gender-Nonconforming Artists and to cultivate an environment where we can express ourselves freely and provide a platform to share our gifts.

By creating this space, we aim to build a community of forward thinking artists, promote inclusivity, raise awareness and foster understanding of transgender and gender non-conforming identities through artistic expression.
