Description: 

The ESPAVO Project is a photographic and narrative project designed to increase personal healing and empowerment for trans* and gender non-conforming individuals and loved ones who have experienced sexual violence. The project's goal is to increase personal healing and empowerment for trans* and gender non-conforming survivors and loved ones, as well as offering strength and hope to the community. Participants work with a professional photographer FORGE has screened to develop a series of portraits aimed at showcasing the person's "survivorship."  Participants will receive a frameable copy of their favorite portrait.  Participants can also have a personal statement (we'll help you write it if you want) affixed to their portrait and/or have it included in an online and/or traveling FORGE Espavo Project gallery to inspire others.  Photographs will be taken at specific trans conferences and events, and/or in cities where both those wanting to participate and FORGE photographers live or travel.Photographer Dan Mouer will join forces with FORGE staff in Bethesda, MD on November 15, 2013 (2:00pm - 9:00pm) and November 16, 2013 (10:00am - 3:00pm). You won't want to miss this amazing opportunity with an amazing, sensitive photographer.Each session is scheduled for 60 minutes. It begins by completing a photo release form that includes your contact information and how you would like your image used (or not used). The photographer -- Dan Mouer -- will talk with you for a few minutes about what you would like, determine any boundaries, and help you feel more comfortable before beginning to take photographs.
