Documenting Dysphoria

19 images Created 16 Mar 2018

Inspired by Salgu’s own journey as a nonbinary person, Documenting Dysphoria is a series of illustrative portraits that explores what gender dysphoria feels like.

Gender dysphoria is such an important experience among trans individuals and it is this experience which often allows people to come to understand their own identity. Despite the importance of this experience, gender dysphoria is sorely misunderstood by society.

These images are intended to affirm and offer visibility to the trans and nonbinary experience from a queer lens. First and foremost, this project is for the trans community. For us to hear and see fellow trans people’s stories. For us to recognize parts of ourselves in the experiences of others. Ultimately it is to empower us to embrace our own skin.
