Emily Boyajian is a pianist and composer. Her creation for the 2022-2023 Cedar Commissions, Transition, is an illustration of the journey that is one’s gender transition. Emily draws on her own experiences as a trans woman and explores those nuanced and dynamic experiences, creating stories that other trans people can see themselves in, too.

RECLAIM's mission is to increase access to mental health care for queer and trans youth so they may reclaim their lives from oppression in all its forms. RECLAIM provides financially accessible, specialized mental health care to queer and trans youth ages 12-25 and their families. We also engage in community events and offer training and consultation services to help our partners improve their ability to work with queer and trans folks.
