Call Me Ill
Coming Soon!


T. Banks' show is a gut-wrenching and thought-provoking look at mental illness, the medical industrial complex, and how different systems work together to limit the wellness of black queer people. Loud and Unchained is literally off the chain! 

Karma Chávez, Ph.D,


T Banks 29, from Madison, WI is a community organizer, a mental wellness advocate, poet and playwright. After graduating with a degree in English Creative Writing from UW-Madison, Banks has successfully used his art through plays and poetry to address Racism, Transphobia, and Abelism. As a Black Trans, Queer person with a disability, T believes the movement for Black Lives must be intersectional and deeply connected to the struggle to end Patriarchy, 

 specifically as it manifest as violence against Black Trans folks. His work addresses the need for the Black liberation movement to be accessible to those with mental wellness challenges and or physical disabilities as well fight for the ability of these populations to regain their autonomy in a capitalistic society.
