Arnal, Kike: Bordered Lives (eBook)

A richly evocative collection of photographs by internationally renowned photographer Kike Arnal, "Bordered Lives" seeks to push back against the transphobic caricatures that have perpetuated discrimination against the transgender community in Mexico. Despite some important advances in recognizing and protecting the rights of its transgender community, including legislating against hate crimes targeting transgender people, discrimination still persists, and the majority of the violent attacks against the LGBT community are against transgender women. In the highly personal profiles that make up "Bordered Lives," Arnal takes us into the lives of seven individuals in and around Mexico City. He shows them going about their day-to-day lives: getting ready in the morning, interacting with family and friends, and devoting their lives to helping others in the transgender community.

Deeply honest, sensitive, and humane, "Bordered Lives" challenges society's preconceived notions of sexuality, gender, and beauty not only in Mexico but across the globe. "Bordered Lives" was designed by Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios (EWS).
