Trans and Non-Binary People Wanted to Model For Exciting New Trans Health Service

Published: 19 September 2020 Tags: By Joe Nellist

We are in the process of launching a new and innovative trans health service in Greater Manchester, and we're looking for trans and non-binary people to be photographed to help promote the service. An example of how the images might look is The Gender Spectrum Collection. We've commissioned the fantastic photographer Manchester Tom for this project, you may have seen his Queers of Manchester series!

We want to showcase the diversity of our communities, and we actively encourage trans and non-binary people of colour and/or disabled and/or older and/or of faith to be a part of this. We also actively encourage trans and non-binary people at different points in your transition journey.

This service is being produced by and for trans and non-binary people, and so we're not necessarily looking for people who look "like a model" - you do not need to to have any previous modelling experience or to present in a certain way.

As this is a Greater Manchester service, we think it's important to showcase some of the iconic locations around our great city-region - from Wigan to Oldham, Bury to Stockport. If you have a preference of where you would like to be photographed, please let us know.

The safety of you and our team is really important to us. We are carrying out risk assessment on every photoshoot, and if selected for this project, one of our team will have a discussion with you about what to expect from the day. We will also be at every photoshoot to make sure you have the support you need on the day.

Whilst we can't guarantee exact timing, photoshoots will take approximately 1-2 hours. These will be taking place over the next couple of weeks. To thank you for your time, you will be paid £50 in shopping vouchers!

You must be 18+ to be involved in this project.

If you would like to be part of this groundbreaking work, please send your name and a photo of yourself to joe.nellist@lgbt.foundation. If you have any more questions, please get in touch!
