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

  • I don't find anything wrong with being transgender but stop brainwashing kids with it!

  • I'm sorry, but if you start to supporting trans-gender people, you are going to lose lots of people from instagram, it is not the way it's supposed to be, everyone will leave instagram if you do this. It's your choice

Cheers to Monday and to the hard-work! 🍷🌅 End your day with a glass of your favourite wine and your Monday is fixed! . . .📷: @kate_morozova
A jaw-dropping collection of Brunello di Montalcino. “Brunello” is dialect for “the nice dark one”, which makes sense when you see the deep red color and taste the intense notes of blackberry, black cherry, black raspberry fruit, chocolate, violet, and leather. Brunellos have longevity unlike other neighboring wines and tend to hold their flavor, if not improve upon it, with time. 🍷 . . . 📸by talented @cec_deste . . #winery #tuscany #italy🇮🇹 #wine #vino #wein #winemaker #winetime #winelover #redwine #winetasting #winecountry #cantina #instawine #drinks
