Photos and commentary on Portland Trans March 2015: Full evidence the gender binarism concept is broken

portland pdx trans march 2015 03LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Participation hit 2,000 people in the Portland, Oregon Trans March this year according to local media. What stuck me was the difference from 8 or so years ago when a loosely organized transgender march was just a small part of a Dyke Parade — maybe 4 or 5 dozen trans people marching, mostly trans women. I remember that day fondly though, helping carry the Q Center banner, surrounded by trans allies who were most welcoming! (You know who you are, thank you!)

Fast forward 8 years the difference is striking. Thousands. Families and kids. Trans men. Mostly though, full evidence of a completely broken concept: gender binarism. There was an almost absolute cross representation of every possible classification under the trans umbrella — and on this day this was the last thing on their minds. It ought soon be the same for those in the rest of society. We’ve made quite a bit of headway from a mere 8 years ago.

My thanks to the Portlanders who were willing to stop and pose for me — it makes for much more compelling photos than the standard parade fare! Enjoy!
