Transcend: Portraits of Transgender & Gender Diverse Youth
27 April - 15 May 2016
Opening Wednesday 27 April, 6.30-8pm
Transcend - Portraits of Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth is a photographic series of 10 works by Sydney photographer Emma Leslie, capturing 10 children aged 5 - 17, dressed how they feel best reflects their personality and in an environment they are most comfortable in.
This series is a chance to create awareness of the reality that is Transgender and the everyday children that live with it. It has also been a moment for the subjects to feel happy in their own skin, as their true self and to inspire others to do the same.
As the debate rages regarding the Safe School program, Transcend is a timely exhibition featuring some of the very individuals who are most at risk without the support and protection of legislation.
