Barboza-Gubo & Mroczek : The transgender community of Peru have been oppressed and marginalized by political and religious administrations. They are denied medical treatment, employment, education, official forms of identification, and there are zero laws to protect them. They are being eradicated from their culture. The photography project, “Virgenes de le Puerta” is increasing the global dialog and visibility of transgender women in the cultural landscape of Peru.
With our project in full swing we are asking you to assist us in our efforts. Our work has already created a large transformative buzz in Lima, and your assistance will directly impact their lives and protect members of the LGBTQ community. CHECK OUT MORE @ KICKSTARTER www.BarbozaGubo-Mroczek.com

IRISH CENTRAL: MacDonagh and MacBride and Connolly and Pearse. Every Irish school boy or girl knows the names of all the main players in the Easter Rising of 1916, but one revolutionary patriot has long been denied his due. If you’ve never heard of Roger Casement the reason is as simple as it is sad, he was homosexual. For that reason he was ignored when he was not being written out of our revolutionary history. At the turn of the century Casement, a longtime diplomat and human rights activist, was undergoing a profound and personal transformation. His travels were proving to him that the British Empire (and other colonial European powers) were profiting from exploitation, cruelty and murder….
That series of developments ought to have inducted him into the Irish revolutionary hall of fame, but an an unexpected wrinkle in the tale prevented it. A set of diaries, which British authorities claimed he had written in the years 1903, 1910 and 1911 was circulated. They revealed that he was homosexual, that he was remarkably promiscuous, and that he usually paid for his encounters, which involved much younger men and teenagers from a lower social class.

“Out of the closet come” means without exception, rejection by family and friends, no work and the risk of imprisonment of up to ten years.
Ernst had 45 people willing to let portray themselves, thereby giving a face to the hidden and forbidden life of the gay scene in West Africa .
As a product designer Coppejans (1974) visited West Africa regularly for work. As much as he enjoyed the countries, each time he realized he could never really be himself. A situation that West African gay men and lesbians have to deal with every day.
Coppejans – now an accomplished photographer – wanted to tell this story by giving this anonymous group a face through a series of portraits. Easier said than done. But through the help of the COC and Human Rights Watch, last winter he managed to get in touch with two persons who fight for the rights of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender). They put him into contact with several young people he then portrayed.
Now, six months later, there is a wonderful series of portraits of brave Africans. “I met beautiful, sweet, inspirational and talented young people who refuse to hide behind a heterosexual marriage and therefore have no future. Some stories brought me to tears. It was tremendously brave of them to cooperate with me on this project.
