101.bois and dykes.

"Bois and Dykes is a long-term documentary series that examines the concept of ‘feminine masculinity’ by visually telling the stories of people who live within a spectrum of identities ranging from dyke and butch, to tomboy, aggressive, and transgender."

I discovered this interesting series from Sophia Wallace a few weeks ago.
And I must admit: It´s calm and meaningful..honest.
Especially the comments below the picture of Sophias homepage.
It´s a controversial theme, not only in the United States..so it´s important that there are people who wants to explain.

Truer is an autobiographical love story. The title is aimed at challenging the idea of a singular truth regarding love, sexuality, and gender. This body of work was inspired by the resplendence of an unfolding relationship. Through photographs of intensely private moments both joyful and in conflict, Truer seeks to engage the viewer in questioning pervasive visual depictions of truth in love, gender norms, and feminine beauty. Truer situates itself within a largely unseen history of photography of lesbian lives by lesbian photographers.
