Gender Continuum

The society today strives to put labels on everyone. It’s a natural thing which helps outsiders relate, and it makes it easier to comprehend in our polarized world. But the world is not black and white, rather a gradient map. Humans are more advanced than male and female, straight and gay. I believe gender and sexuality is a floating thing, which exist in a continuum. There are infinite ways to be identified: straight, gay, bi, FTM trans, MTF, trans, intersex, neutrois, demigod, demigirl, drag queen, androgynous, and more.

With this project I want to inform people about the different ways to identify, to prove that the world is more nuanced than what the majority may think. The best weapon against ignorance is knowledge and information, which I hope will make prejudicial people more accepting towards others.

I’ve always known I wanted to be a photographer, even though the road to get there hasn’t always been equally consistent. I’ve learned and experienced a lot over the past two years, and I look forward to what photography have to offer me in the future.
