The ‘TransBrasil’ project aims to increase understanding of gender identity issues through photography, approaching different social and cultural expressions that question the binary schemes of masculine/feminine to understand the gender and identity process. Transgender people express their gender identities in many different ways. Some people use their dress, behaviour and mannerisms to live as the gender that feels right for them, some take hormones and may have surgery to change their body to match their gender identity. Some transgender people reject the traditional labels of “masculine” and “feminine” identifying as transgender, gender queer, gender fluid, or something else.
