Visual Bodies Photo Exhibition
A picture is truly worth a thousand words, doubly so when its some nobody’s blog such as mine. This photo exhibition, and the short essays that accompany it, offer a glimpse into the hearts and minds of those who too often are scorned by the ignorant.
There’s not much I can add to the essays, except to toss in my own feelings.
I can readily identify with the photo above. There are so many days where I wonder if I truly am a transwoman, or simply genderqueer. I don’t have a burning desire to shave, however I do wish I could dress how I wanted to in public without receiving gawks, double takes, and whispers. I truly hope that when my grandchildren are raising their children, this issue will be dealt with the way my mom dealt with race when I grew up. People are people, the color of their skin doesn’t matter. People are people, their gender is their business, now mind yours.
As always, comments welcome.
