Discovering Gender Project



Discovering Gender is a national project based in Virginia.

This project is spearheaded by two people named Ash & Jess, who have founded this initiative as a way to bring visibility to gender issues surrounding Trans/Gender Non-Conforming individuals.

Here is what they say about the Project:


“Discovering Gender is a photojournalism project that works to end some of the isolation and stigmatization of trans* and gender non-conforming folks by highlighting their everyday humanity on our blog, social media, and in the press. We use the power of storytelling to demonstrate that humans of all gender identities/presentations are valid, vibrant parts of our larger communities.


The project is a beautiful reminder of the strength and resilience that are required to live outside of the traditional gender binary in our current society.


We are visiting cities/towns in all 48 contiguous United States over the next two years to photograph and interview participants. We are currently looking for GNC/trans individuals that are interested in educating, empowering, and encouraging others by sharing their stories with us. We’ll be traveling through Memphis at the end of March.


To learn more about who we are, what we do, and how to get involved – visit our website, or Instagram.”
