Humans of Toronto Trans March 2015

Inspired by Humans of New York, I set my own agenda for the day: to photograph the Trans of Toronto Trans March. I’m not really good at starting conversations, so, instead of asking them directly, I asked them to pick one question from my camera bag. It’s like an extemporaneous speech but I told them to answer it briefly. You know, I’m not good at note-taking, too! 😀

“How do you explain to a child what Trans means?”

“What’s a good thing about being Trans?”
