Look At This Awesome Thing: TransCuba

It's trans visibility time! Photographer and painter Mariette Pathy Allen has been touring the globe to document trans culture in different cultures. Her newest book focuses on the growing community in Cuba, with beautiful photos as well as interviews.

You can see a sampling of the photos here, and the Amazon listing for the book is here. It's discounted from $45 to $32.11. Still kind of expensive, unfortunately. Not that Allen doesn't deserve it, but it can be hard for a group of people that disproportionately suffer from poverty.

Activism idea! If you want to support the trans community and the artist at the same time, I recommend buying the book and donating it to a local organization that supports trans people. The same thing was recommended by Janet Mock, so not really my idea. Her book is also amazing, by the way.
