Join us for a presentation and discussion with Basil V. Soper, the founder and director of Transilient, a traveling photo and interview-based project that candidly documents transgender and gender non-conforming people in their day-to-day lives and in their own voices.

Transilient attempts to humanize, educate, and destroy the assumption that trans folks are solely defined by their physical experience and their oppression. To bring about understanding and tackle transphobia, Transilient aims to weave transgender lives into the overall human experience, instead of merely focusing on the transition.

Transilient's objective is to create a platform that is accessible to all people, in and out of the transgender community.
