The Story

Transilient is a traveling photo and interview-based project. We candidly document transgender and gender non-conforming people in their day-to-day lived realities using only their voices. We are hitting the road again in July and raising funds to bring on trans folks to help us do this necessary work (and pay them) as well as cover some of our travel expenses ! 

The project attempts to humanize, educate and destroy the assumption that trans folks are solely defined by their physical experience and their oppression.  To bring about understanding and tackle transphobia we aim to weave transgender lives into the overall human experience instead of merely focusing on the transition.

Our objective is to create a platform that is accessible to all people, in and out of the trans community.

In 2016, the Transilient team drove over 10,000 miles around the U.S. interviewing trans folks from all walks of life.

This is where you come in, allies!

Transilient’s entire aim is to give the many facets of trans people, without a platform, visibility in the world.

Help us achieve this goal by donating to our fundraiser today!

What a day! This Trump rollercoaster is starting to give me whip lash! Anyone know how to get off?

Between an executive order that ultimately ends the separation of church and state as well as Trump Care passing the house, and it specifically cutting out coverage for transgender people, .. it's been a wild Friday! 

Transilient is proud to hit the road again this Summer and tackle these issues while humanizing trans folks.

Please share our fundraiser and donate to help make this Summer successful! 

Thank you everyone!!
