I am Trans March: Clair
In 2013, Trans March decided to commemorate its 10th annual march with a social media campaign. I conceptualized the “I am Trans March” idea, which would feature 10 community activists to symbolize the 10 marches. I then coordinated the search for the 10 people and produced each shoot by helping participants pick their words and shooting them. I teamed up with a graphic designer to create the final pieces, which helped make the 10th Annual Trans March a resounding success.
