The New York Times magazine published this week a cover story:
Whats Wrong With A Boy Who Wears A Dress? A new approach to parenting gender-fluid children.
Photo above – Butterfly Tableau Part II – is a sequel from photo book INSIDE OUT / Portraits from Cross-gender children 2003-2010.
These are Dutch transgender boys and girls. We made this photo a month ago. What we see is the other way around. The girls are born as boys, and the boys are born as girls. These Dutch kids and their parents are the Gender-fluid pioneers. They want to be out in the open because they’re happy with their approach. And they want to inspire all other families all over the world.
According tho other countries, Dutch society is very compassionate with transgender people. The first doctor who was in the sixties involved with cross gender people was at Sundays a deacon in church. Because of his feelings of true Compassion he wanted to help.
Read the poem at earlier blog from a mother about her gender-fluid child. And have a look at ‘Transgender angels’.
The book and new photos will be seen on the New York Times website soon!
