OPENING RECEPTION: OCTOBER 17, 7-9PM
For more than 30 years, American photographer Mariette Pathy Allen has been
documenting transgender culture worldwide; in 2004 she won the Lambda Literary Award for her book The Gender Frontier. In her latest series, TransCuba, which was published in a monograph of the same title by Daylight Books, Allen captures the transgender community of Cuba through vibrant color photographs. Her images document the details of the everyday lives of her subjects at home and engaging with the community at large, revealing the growing visibility and acceptance of transgender people in a country whose government is transitioning into a more relaxed model of communism under Raúl Castro’s presidency.
