#WhatTransLooksLike

so here's a thing...  back at the end of august, The Huffington Post - Gay Voices blog published an article entitled "Transgender People Share Photos Of Themselves For #WhatTransLooksLike"... i was intrigued (it was a holiday weekend... didn't have much to do...) and took a selfie and posted it with the hashtag:


i then started to look for other pics with the hashtag #WhatTransLooksLike, and was amazed at the diversity (and number) of photos... in fact after scrolling through the first 100 or so, i realized that a powerful statement would be to see a large group of these photos, together, all at once (rather than seriatim, one at a time) so i started to collect the photos and then loaded them into Posterino...  i created a montage that contained a few hundred photos and then posted that online, but within hours there were an additional 100 photos.. so i updated my collage again and again, each time adding in additional photos, and tweaking the existing images to best display each of the amazing faces...  eventually i came up against the limit of the Posterino software (500 images) and said "Fini!" and here is the result:

i love this collection of faces... and even if you're not in there, you're in there...

feel free to share (i only ask attribution) and if you would like to grab the full-size 25MB, 6681x5725 image (suitable for framing or wrapping fish) you can grab it here.

namaste and at this time (of all times):

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell The Truth and
Don't Be Attached To The Outcome
