Photo of cairo mo cairo mo (he/they) is a painter based in Berkeley, CA. As a trans masculine person, cairo practices artmaking as healing, ritual, and celebration. He is working on an ongoing archival project to document the intimate and mundane moments of local queer youth subculture. He also creates linocut prints based on the forgotten queer stories of Chinese folklore as a way to honour his queer ancestors. Their work has been published in art journals and magazines and exhibited locally as well as internationally in France. • Photo by Sefa Santos-Powell
