TRANSILIENT

ABOUT

Changing the trans narrative one interview at a time

Transilient is a traveling photo and interview-based project. We candidly document 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 and their oppression.  To bring about understanding and tackle transphobia we aim to weave transgender lives into the overall human experience instead of merely focusing on the transition.

 

Our objective is to create a platform that is accessible to all people, in and out of the trans community.

 

In 2016, the Transilient team drove over 10,000 miles around the U.S. interviewing trans folks from all walks of life.

 

This July Transilient is hitting the road again in a post Trump America. We will be focusing on the states most impacted by anti-LGBT legislation.
