TRANS Project, 2017
Due to the transgression of the binary gender system, transgender people suffer very high levels of prejudice, discrimination and social exclusion. Stigma, social invisibility, deprivation of opportunity, and legal and moral indigence seem to be doomed to these individuals. According to the National Association of Transvestites and Transsexuals (ANTRA), 90% of trans people resort to the sex industry to survive due to lack of formal employer acceptance.
"Between Pleasure and Loneliness" seeks to portray in an intimate and subtle way the reality faced by a large part of the trans population. This life is filled with opposites: full of performance, exhibitionism, joy, sex, fellow passengers, which is contrasted by solitude, the empty self and the reflection of their essence.
