Trans*cending Gender

Local artists Rhys Harper and Gavin Rouille explore the changing transgender conversation through artwork at the Syracuse Trans*cending Gender exhibit.

There are places in Kaleb Lynch’s North Carolina hometown where he will not go, ever, even with people.

These are places where residents like to sit on their porches in rocking chairs with shotguns, and where good ol’ boys come to hang out at night. Though Lynch’s home is a college town, and the only real “blue” part of the county, these are places he, as a transgender man, isn’t safe or welcome.

“I wouldn't go up there because I just wouldn't do it,” he says.
