the what’s underneath project: juliana huxtable

August 21, 2014

Recently photographed by Petra Collins for Dazed, Juliana Huxtable’s story is so empowering and inspiring. The DJ, writer, and artist tells all about how she was bullied and harassed due to her race, and how it connected to her choice of genders. Once, when her train broke down, a group of teenage boys surrounded her and described all the ways in which they would kill her. Despite the hardships, today Juliana embraces her body, explaining that it’s helped her see how most people’s notions of what’s considered normal and natural are skewed and unfounded.
