you are loved

On World Toilet Day 2018, I choreographed a performance in partnership with Lava Mae to raise awareness about the lack of access to basic hygiene services in San Francisco.

Several dozen participants placed removable vinyl that said YOU ARE LOVED. across the mirrors of all publicly accessible bathrooms in the city and a wall label which said, “Love and bathrooms should never be in short supply, but with only 24 public toilets across San Francisco (none of which are open 8pm-7am), our 7,500 houseless neighbors are being forced to use the sidewalk as a bathroom. Learn more & take part in the solution: www.lovesticks.org.”

The performance instigated a policy change discussion with District 8 Representative Matt Haney, was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and Fox News, and reached over 100K people on social media.
