The Magazine of Photography and Ideas
This winter, with the debate for transgender rights and queer visibility reaching a new level of urgency in the United States and around the world, Aperture magazine will release “Future Gender,” a landmark issue dedicated to the representation of transgender lives, communities, and histories in photography. Guest edited by Zackary Drucker, the artist, activist, and producer of the acclaimed television series Transparent, “Future Gender” considers how trans and gender-nonconforming individuals have used photography to imagine new expressions of social and personal identity, from the nineteenth century to today.
