Transpose is the result of collaboration with transgender people in Ireland that set out to make environmental portraits in ‘safe spaces’ for transgender people around the country. Many of the portraits have been made at the wonderful space Outhouse on Capel Street. The work has grown over the last two years to become an appreciation of key trans activists and allies in Ireland at a particular moment. It is important to me to have a record of the people who are currently denied rights in our country as well as the people who are fighting for equality and advocating on behalf of trans* people. This is important to me not only because I identify as a bisexual woman and an activist but because the trans community is one of the most marginalised groups in society.
