The Outliers: Genderqueer Photography Project
I found this on Tumblr and wanted to help get the word out. Pass it on!
Very few images of genderqueer people exist in contemporary photographic media or other visual story telling methods. In searching for my own identity, I found reading the stories and seeing the faces of others who were like me to be extremely important in my own self-identification and maturing process. Frustrated by the lack of genderqueer representation in media, I am traveling the country to photograph and record the stories of those who live outside the binary.
However, we gender queer folk are a rare breed – and I only know a few others who I identify like me in the area. I’m trying to make this project as inclusive as possible so if you’d like to be photographed or simply have your story recorded, please get in contact with me!
I am currently traveling the United States making this work – check out the travel page to see if i will be anywhere near you!
If you want to be photographed and are not in an area listed, email me anyway. I’ve left my travel open ended so that I can alter the direction I go in.
In order to allow as many people who’d like to participate as possible, an online form has been set up to allow people to submit reflections on how they came to understand their gender, what gender means to them, and/or their personal history – basically anything. You can submit your stories here.
This project is supported by The Meyer Photography Traveling Fellowship.
