Changing the trans narrative one interview at a time
Transilient is a photo and interview-based project that documents transgender and gender non-conforming people in their day-to-day lived realities using only their voices.
The project attempts to humanize, educate and destroy the assumption that trans folks are solely defined by their physical experience. We aim to weave transgender lives into the overall human experience instead of merely focusing on the transition.
In 2016, the Transilient team drove over 10,000 miles around the U.S. interviewing trans folks from all walks of life.
