One of every twelve trans women will be murdered in the United States; one of every eight trans women of color. Imagine 1 in every 12 women on your street being murdered.
#TransIsBeautiful is a collection of portraits depicting trans women murdered in 2015 in the United States. Ten of the sixteen (at current reckoning) are complete. Say their names. Have conversations. These women are a part of me; they are a part of you.
