Phases

 

Phases is a series meant to reflect my struggles as a transgender man by organizing my life as four separate phases. This body of work will continue to grow throughout my life.

Phase 1: Trying to be the best little girl I could be and live up to the standards set out for me by my parents as to whom I should become.

Phase 2: Believing I was an abomination because I came to understand myself as a lesbian who did meet my parents standards.

Phase 3: My physical transition from male to female after realizing I was not simply a lesbian but a transgender man.

Phase 4: This Phase has less work because it is the least familiar part of my life. I have yet to experience a part where I have truly felt male in totality and so have very little in this category.
