A Story from the UK

Being Human: Human Being

‘Being Human – Human Being’ is a national youth initiative which aims to break down barriers and prejudices surrounding young trans people.

The project used photography as a medium to explore the issues they face, as well as help share their experience of gender identity and how gender expression translates into everyday life.

We worked with a group of young people who attend ‘Transformers’, a support group for trans people aged 16-25, run by the Allsorts youth project in Brighton.

The project has produced a book which explains correct terminology and explodes common myths, as well as advocating for ‘trans-allies’ -  people who combat trans fear and prejudice.
