+ This Photographer Spent Seven Years Photographing Their Trans Bestie

As a trans photographer myself, it’s important to me to shift the gaze of cis photographers profiting off of trans bodies, and create a body of work that is rooted in mutual care. As trans visibility increases, I want to make sure it’s shown that trans people who do not fit neatly in the binary are beautiful too. I want to show androgyny in a way that’s not “neutral,” but rather the opposite—extreme masculinity mixed with extreme femininity. I want to capture the stunning audacity to exist as everything all at once.

  1. Lucy, the football ref, is adorable! I’m happy for her that she is sticking with the job she enjoys. I wish her all the luck in the world!

  2. Ok…I have to ask. I noticed no one wrote anything for Autostraddle on the passing of Aretha Franklin. And I know at least one of you is from the “D”. Was she homophobic and no one told me???

  3. Julia Fawl seems like an impressive candidate! Local elections can have such a huge impact!
