I have been photographing the Transgender community for over 25 years. Trans genders from around the world face fears daily. Gender inequalities, domestic violence, bigotry, psychological distresses and murder continue to plaque their communities. With the work I am doing I am hoping to educate and inform people that carry with them hatred and bigotry actions. It is knowledge that can change the way a person can feel about someone that is not just like them. This work has taken me to 10 countries as I continue to document the trans community worldwide.
