Recommendation: Guys with Fancy Lady Hair


Someone recommends…

"Guys with Fancy Lady Hair"

Guys with Fancy Lady Hair
Before and After Photos

I had to share this. I love long hair. There is something magical about all kinds of men who are not afraid to express themselves in gender non-conforming ways — and they have long hair! Enjoy.

Portrait shot of a person with a short beard painted orange with a hot-pink strip down from the nose, wearing a carnivalesque mask with glitter, beads, and lots of feathers. The colours are mostly yellow and hot-pink with some cyan.

Recommendation: Portraits of Men Wearing Their Girlfriends’ Clothes


Someone recommends…

Jon-Uriarte_4JaviGabi

As the title says, this is a photo shoot of men wearing an outfit from their girlfriends. From the photographer’s description: “He wanted to make images that showed not only the equality of balance in heterosexual relationships, but also the feeling of confusion the male may be experiencing with this change.”

I think Genderfork readers will appreciate this because of the portrayal of cis-gendered men in a feminine aspect and the reactions that may evoke. For example, one of the commentators on the original website said that the portraits made him feel uncomfortable yet curious how his girlfriend may have influenced his own gender expression over time.

Recommendation: The work of Andy Karol


Lee recommends…

Two portraits from “Eden: Expressions in Gender” photographed by Andy Karol, of two individuals, both POC, who identify on the gender spectrum as variant or fluid. Kokumo, on the left, is standing in a river, with the afro cut looking like a halo, closely holding water plants almost looking like a net, and eyes closed head towards the sky. Kia, on the right, is bald-shaven, with a simple circular ring in each ear, and is almost hidden between grass, with just the head emerging, staring into the camera with a piercing, powerful look.

The work of Andy Karol
A portrait project

This project lives through me. It is a concept, a bridge, a running topic, a challenge, and many other things. The images haunt, linger, inspire, incite, and provoke. I want people to understand the ability to strip down our gender to our inner selves and this is why nudity is used. The classic play on the Biblical ‘Eden’ reaches this importance. Gender spills out of us in uncontrollable ways and when we realize this then the real play begins. The quality of this work is based on years of experience and passion.

Recommendation: Sworn Virgins


Anna recommends…

Hajdari, a sworn virgin: a person with their hair covered, sitting outside, clasping a walking stick in one hand and a young child in the other.

This photo project is a study of “burnesha” or women who have become sworn virgins to escape the oppressive laws against women. They change their appearances, mannerisms and even names, and take a vow of celibacy. It’s an interesting study of an ancient practice of gender swapping which is quickly becoming obsolete.

Recommendation: 10×10 photography project


James Fowler recommends…

Portrait of Nina Arsenault, with long wavy dark blonde hair, some strands randomly curling and defying gravity, wearing a shiny black shoulder-free top, and lots and lots of necklaces.

10×10 photography project
An annual photography exhibition and book launch

10×10 is an annual photography exhibition celebrating the contributions of LGBTQ Canadians to the Arts. Each year ten queer Canadian photographers are selected to each take ten portraits of ten different Canadians who have in some way made a contribution to the arts, either as a creative, or as an arts worker, administrator or philanthropist. All 100 photos are exhibited at the Gladstone hotel during Toronto Pride week and sold as a book with proceeds going towards an arts initiative for queer and trans youth.

2013 marks the third edition of 10×10. It is planned as a ten year project, which, with the 10th exhibition in 2021, will have included the work of 100 photographers and documented 1000 queer Canadians in the arts.

Recommendation: Family Portrait


Pedro aka Strangelfreak recommends…

A grayscale photo of three people posing in a typical "family portrait" position. One has long hair and is wearing a dress, another has short hair and is wearing a beard and a striped button-down shirt, and the third is on their knees, wearing a patterned sleeveless dress and posing cutely.

Family Portrait
Photography shoot

A photoshoot I made for a project on Non-heteronormative family units, in this case is Lorena who is an M2F trans, Claudia genderneutral (wearing my beard) and Filippo Putrefashion who is a genderfucker… I hope you like it.

Recommendation: Zhang Jigna’s Photography


A reader recommends…

I’ve admired Zhang Jigna’s (see also http://zemotion.deviantart.com/) photography for a long time. And I was especially taken by these shots of Daniel Landroche. The blog post has a (brief) interesting bit of commentary on different people’s conception of beauty. These photographs in particular stand out to me for capturing a kind of elegance we don’t often see associated with male beauty. These aren’t the images of stereotypical male strength or of dominance that most frequently make up our images of men.

This is a neat set of pairs of photos where the two outfits in the picture stay the same, but the people wearing the outfits change.

Recommendation: 1972 at&t bell advert


Luz recommends…

1972 at&t bell advert.
an ad for their first female installer

When gender boundaries were being busted down, and androgyny was rampant and acceptable. Conversely there is also an ad for the first male operator who resembles ashton kutcher.

at&t wants girls that can climb and boys that can talk on the phone for hours

Recommendation: Hey Mainstream Media, I Am…


A reader recommends…

IMG_9329

A high schooler (now a recent grad, I think) decided to blog her way through an issue of Seventeen magazine, using tips and advice from it every day for a month. It was pretty interesting in and of itself. She noted the assumed homogeneity of the Seventeen reader (thin, “good” hair, etc.) not to mention the myriad other problems with teen media and decided to address the problem.

Now she is asking people to submit pictures of themselves with the prompt, “Hey Mainstream Media, I Am…” She has not decided what to do with the pictures yet, but wants to make them somehow visible to media execs. You do not have to be a teen or a girl, and I thought that the gender-variant, androgynous, and otherwise awesome readers of Genderfork would have some great ideas for submissions.

Hijab

submitted by Izzy, the photographer.

From the Photographer:

I did a photo series called Gender Outlaws a few weeks ago. The series primarily explored how body language and appearance choices and sex communicated gender (pro tip: only the first one really counts), but also touched on issues of what types of body language we associate with which genders, (like passivity and aggression), how race can play into the power dynamics, and lots of other things.
