Trans*formando Salt Lake City showcases the vibrant trans* identified community and allies that live in this city. Many outside of Utah and even those living in Utah are not aware of the wonderful trans* community here. We used this photo project as a way to create awareness and start the conversation about the needed resources and services, especially for trans* individuals of color. Unfortunately, some resort to dangerous and illegal methods of transitioning when resources and services are not readily available or if due to legal status or not speaking the language, some may not know who or where to go to. This project created many venues or people asking questions, people wanting to get involved and for others, it has meant the strength to “come out” and say, “this is who I AM AND I AM PROUD OF IT”.
