TRANS MASC STUDIES

@transmascstudies is an instagram account documenting trans masculine history.

“Given how rarely images of trans men appear in the historical archive, and given that when trans male images do appear, they are frequently read as depicting unmarked male bodies, what are the challenges and the opportunities embedded in staging a visual history of the trans male body? […] When looking for trans male histories, we have to attune our gaze to often magical masculinities — now you see them, now you don’t.”

- Jack Halberstam, Eric's Ego Trip, Aperture 2017
