"Self"-Portrait

Updated: May 25, 2019


This is a self-portrait exercise I did with a group LGBTQAI+ young people. It was an opportunity for them to depict themselves and express the differences between the versions of themselves they need to be for their families (particularly if they haven't come out yet or haven't transitioned yet) and their true selves they hope to be able to show more openly. It was beautiful seeing how the transgender young people could imagine their the bodies transition, and how the ones coming out could envision the most rainbowey versions of themselves. I always join in on everything I ask participants to do.
