this donation has been made to assist doriana and her brand amid the COVID-19 outbreak to assist her & fellow black & brown artists whose income has been severely impacted by show cancellations, slowing ticket sales, and/or low turnout during this pandemic. please consider donating to the diaz collections & other black & brown artists who are suffering during this time.
“ i create to come home to myself, to find new ways to fall in love with my bones, my blood, and my body because only i can honor the sacred stories that they hold. creating is a birthing process. my creations are my proof to the world that i have existed, that i have loved, fought, survived, liberated. i create to pay homage to all the places my body and my mind have been. it is my children & my children’s children’s inheritance. it is everything that is inside me begging to be born.”
