Their work centers queer identities, specifically non-binary people that have been erased from written history, finding their stories primarily through the remaining oral history passed down to us by the trans community and the stories that live in their own body.

Between putting on skits in their parents' closet at age eight, remaking Hannah Montana music videos with their family camcorder and rushing home from preschool to play dress-up in their best ballerina drag, it was clear they were bound to create from a young age. Someday Lukey wishes to provide the queer art, stories and content they would have wanted access to while growing up, in order to navigate the world.
