In a culture that has long viewed gender in rigid, binary terms: male or female, with no room to maneuver beyond the identity we’re assigned at birth, many are fighting everyday battles to live their true gender identities. Christina Willings’ ‘Beauty’ interviews 5 gender non-conforming children from Vancouver, Canada, who share how they are dealing with bullies, grappling with using public washrooms, and pursuing their hobbies & dreams while growing up. ‘Beauty’ also documents parents that love their children unconditionally and encourage them to be themselves even if it is outside society’s norm.
