Intimate Portraits of Young People Who Identify as Non-Gendered

These photos by San Francisco photographer Chloe Aftel are part of a series shot for San Francisco magazine, depicting the city’s agender and genderqueer community. The series has its roots in a truly ghastly incident last year in San Francisco, when high school senior Sasha Fleischman was set on fire on a public bus. Fleischman, who identifies as neither male nor female, was left with second- and third-degree burns. Aftel’s photos portray Fleischman on their return from hospital, along with other young people who identify as agender or genderqueer. There’s heaps more information about the project at Featureshoot, where we first saw these photos, and Aftel’s website.
