Outliers: Regarding the Space(s) between Genders by ELLE PEREZ
Her series, entitled “Outliers,” explores genderqueer subjects throughout the country, from a campus drag show in Minnesota to a pronoun workshop in Tennessee. Her photographs capture raw moments in the lives of those who live outside the prescribed divisions of male and female.
“Very few images of genderqueer people exist in contemporary photographic media or other visual story telling methods,” wrote Perez, who is only 24 years old. “In searching for my own identity, I found reading the stories and seeing the faces of others who were like me to be extremely important in my own self-identification and maturing process.” - Huffington Post
oh a photoset of genderqueer people that is entirely dfab
not one single dmab genderqueer in the whole country????????????
wow such surprise much typical
I’m the artist. This is my third time replying to this extremely offensive edit of my work and still, people keep choosing to reblog the version WITHOUT my commentary on it. I was never consulted about this edit. I do not agree with this edit. I think this edit is awful, and goes against everything I very consciously did while I was on the road in 2011. You can see the full project here: elleperez.com, and click on the photograph of the white person with black hair wearing a winter coat in the woods.
Again, this conscious attempt to choose to NOT show any of the dmab people that I photographed is extremely transmisogynistic and was NOT a choice that I made or was consulted about.
If I saw this edit of my work I’d say WTF too, so no hate toward those who are reblogging it as such. I would just appreciate re-blogging this or any of the previous responses as well. Feel free to ask me any questions.
