How Far to Fall - Forcing people to live in fear shows nothing but a cruel disregard of their lives. By Aurynn Shaw. "I'm good at writing code. I enjoy playing with languages and I'm deeply interested in graph theory. I'm also unwelcome in the tech community, and I'm here to explain why I, and others like me, will always be at risk of losing everything if tech culture does not change."

The symbol of a pregnant belly in these advertisements is deployed in a way that is supposed to create dissonance. In the frame of the advertisers, the pregnant bellies in the ads are solely female while the rest of the body is solely male. This contrast is supposed to cause discord in the viewer, yielding feelings that the image is “disturbing” or “unexpected,” as the ads say. However, sex and gender are much more complicated than the advertisers understand.

Cauda Pavonis writes "Older queers tend to fall off the map full stop. Trans people, even more so. But we don’t disappear once we stop being, basically, fashionable. Supporting our young people is important, but we need to show them we have a future, too. I literally cannot envision my own future. There are no images of older men like me."

Cauda Pavonis writes "This legit makes me want to cry because I have never seen a picture of an older trans man naked. It’s always young guys, usually much younger than me. It’s like we don’t have a future, an adulthood, a middle age, an old age. It’s like we just stop." Hunter photos by© Jess T. Dugan

'Christer Strömholm: Les Amies de Place Blanche' Captures Transexuals Of Paris Red Light District In 1960s. Strömholm photographed these transgender "ladies of the night," who were biological males forced into selling their bodies to raise funds to pay for sexual reassignment surgery. Born in Sweden, Strömholm moved to the Parisian neighborhood of Pigalle in 1959, where he walked the streets and became intimate friends with the night owls and prostitutes he met along the way.

'Christer Strömholm: Les Amies de Place Blanche' Captures Transexuals Of Paris Red Light District In 1960s Although aesthetically the images embody the sexualized 60s femininity that makes "Mad Men" fans drool, their message is dramatically forward-thinking. The images celebrate the freedom to choose one's identity and the hope that softens the sacrifices we make to construct ourselves. "Les Amies de Place Blanche" will September 2 at the International Center of Photography in New York.

Click-through for a selection of Christer Stromholm's work photographing his transexual friends in Place Blanche, Paris. His photographs, he wrote, "are about insecurity. A portrayal of those living a different life in the big city of Paris, of people who endured the roughness of the streets."
'Christer Strömholm: Les Amies de Place Blanche' Captures Transexuals Of Paris Red Light District In 1960s. It follows, then, that his photographs don't look like those of a voyeur or an outsider, but of an intimate friend. In these moments of pure beauty, Strömholm's subjects get a chance to become the women they want to be: young, sexy, vivacious, and carefree.

Gabel, who has dealt privately with gender dysphoria for yrs, will soon begin the process of transition, by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments. Gabel will eventually take the name Laura Jane Grace, and will remain married to her wife Heather. "For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news," says Gabel. "But she's been super-amazing and understanding."
