In the fall of 2013, Sasha Fleischman was set on fire on a public bus because they (Sasha doesn’t use s/he as identifiers) wore a skirt with a men’s shirt. Sasha identifies as “agender,” while others in this series think of themselves as “non-binary.”
This series aims to document the evolving culture of people living outside or in-between the gender binary, refusing to define themselves as strictly male or female. It was shot in a meaningful place for each subject, most often at home. It is an exploration of what this movement looks like and what it means for each person involved.
