The Trans Awareness Project“…one’s self identified gender is necessarily more legitimate than the one that is rather naively assigned to them by others.”-Julia Serano, Whipping Girl, (2009)
PurposeThe Trans* Awareness Project is a poster and digital media campaign that attempts to challenge stereotypes and cultivate an environment which celebrates and respects people of all genders. This campaign aims to break down barriers between communities and establish positive social change by showcasing empowering snapshots of local trans* communities and bringing attention to the challenges that many trans* people face in daily life.(source)
This had to be one of the funnest shoots I have ever been on. I got to groom the Workaholics boys for Bello Magazine’s April 2014 issue. I love their shown Comedy Central and was pleasantly surprised that they were just as awesome in person!
