If I could say it in words, I wouldn't need to photograph.

“Nearly every human society throughout history has distinguished between male and female gender by the style, colour, or type of clothing they wear and has had a set of norms, views, guidelines, or even laws defining what type of clothing is appropriate for each gender. Crossdressing is a behaviour which runs significantly counter to those norms and therefore can be seen as a type of transgender behaviour. It does not, however, necessarily indicate transgender identity; a person who cross-dresses does not always identify as having a gender different from that assigned at birth.”
