Photographer Annie Tritt ( @transcendingself) has her #EyesOn the journey of transgender youth around the world. “The project started with an idea of authenticity, of what it means to be yourself,” says the New York-based photographer, who takes portraits of transgender children for her series titled “Transcending Self.” “The dynamics that young people experience vary a lot depending on where they live and who their parents are. The only commonality is that the kids who are happy are the ones who are embraced for fully being themselves.” Now three years in the making, Annie didn’t originally intend to dedicate so much time and effort to the project, but the outpouring of support convinced her to continue. “I get messages every time I post something about how ‘Transcending Self’ has changed someone’s life,” says Annie, “from the young trans man who did not see himself reflected in the media, to a 28-year-old who did not think his life was worth living anymore, to a mom who reconnected with her trans child. It’s a project that saves lives. Now that I know that, I can’t stop.” It’s June, and in many countries that means it’s time to celebrate #Pride2017. All month long, we’ll be sharing stories from diverse LGBTQ community members from around the world. Photo by @trittscamera

  • People, this is not "normal".. A person is born as a man or woman, whatever you want to change is in your brain, that's the problem!! You can't go in live saying this is normal and demanding to be accepted as normal when inside them they know is not.. That's why they ask for... Sorry but Whatever they do, they NEVER are going to change that...

Я уже давно не приезжаю на мероприятие за рулём. А, если авария!? 🤦🏻‍♂️ Всё, мероприятие сорвано 🤷🏻‍♂️ Пока приедет представитель страховой компании, пока вы всё нарисуете и т.д. (это, если нет пострадавших) пока оформите всё в ГИБДД 😩 и ещё ☝🏼в этом году, когда ехал на площадку, где проходило масштабное событие и у меня были в этот день три локации, я перевернулся на машине (был пассажиром, пристёгнутым 🙏🏼) Мы получили незначительные повреждения тела, а машина в хлам 😖 Просто повезло 🙄 А теперь давайте представим, что я поехал на своей машине 😏 Вывод: Уважаемые ведущие, вызывайте такси, пристегивайтесь и езжайте на мероприятие 😉 #школаведущих5 Я работаю там, где надо! #МАСТЕРСВОЕГОДЕЛА #ведущий #АРСЕНКАРАПЕТЯН #челябинск #россия #урал #москва #свадьба #event #events #arsenkarapetyan #chelyabinsk #ural #russia #moscow #популярный
