During the Q&A section of the book release party I was asked about the questions I had sent to each of the participants. From the answers came the quotes that accompany each photo in the book. So, as promised, here are the questions:
What is your name?
How old are you?
In what city do you reside?
Are you single, dating, partnered or married?
What is your occupation and/or main activities in life?
How do you identify?
What is your personal definition of your identity?
When did you first identify as such?
Why did you identify as such?
Who were/are your role models?
Did you ever resist your identity? If so, why?
Have you ever been embarrassed or ashamed of your identity?
you ever been ridiculed, threatened or harmed because of your identity?
If so, and if you're comfortable sharing, what happened?
What do you wish people knew about your identity?
Is there anything else you'd like to say?
What are the best days and times to meet with you for a photo shoot?
