This portrait was a part of the Pride Day collection presented at the Museum of Discovery and Science, Family Pride Day (Sat. Jun 24, 2023‎), made with collaborating artist, MelissAllegories, using acrylic, acrylic fluorescents, and oil paint. Sylvia River, a mixed-race Venezuelan-Puerto Rican trans woman, tirelessly fought for the inclusion of transgender people. Silver River, together with Marsha P. Johnson, a black transgender woman who was like a mother to her, were leading figures in the Stonewall Inn riots of 1969 (when the community fought against a police raid).
