“Gender bender” is an offensive and generally awful term for transgender people, but it’s one that’s being reclaimed by activist Jacob Rostovsky and photographer Dusti Cunningham for a new project called Genderbent, a series of portraits and videos of people who don’t conform to conventional gender roles. The project is being crowd-funded at Indiegogo, and as per the description there, it aims to “showcase the beauty of those who have custommade and bent gender to make it their own.” Cunningham’s portraits certainly do an excellent job in this respect — they’re striking, bold images that portray beautifully the spirit and identity of their subjects.
