The Art of Trans Bodies

This post is a collaboration between your author, That Guy Kas, and the wonderful, open-hearted Heath Foster Collison. Thank you for reading and sharing!

 

Lately I’ve been really upset about the amount of censorship I’ve seen towards FTM trans bodies. I’ve seen both FTM trans post-op and pre-op folx have photos deleted/removed from Facebook and Instagram for not meeting community standards while cisgender men celebrate their bodies freely.

It’s disheartening and hard to be body positive as a trans person in a world that constantly insists that our bodies and lives are unfit for viewing.

I know many trans folx, like myself, believe that our bodies ARE a work of art and should be celebrated just as much as cisgender folx.

Additionally, I think it’s important to show just how diverse FTM trans bodies are to the world. We come from all walks of life and that’s a beautiful thing. Let’s celebrate that!

Note to cisgender folx:

The attached photos are of US celebrating OUR bodies. The bodies of folx who identify as non-binary and/or FTM. We are who we say we are. We exist and we deserve to be as unapologetic in our self expression and self love as anyone else.

Censorship based on how you perceive us and our bodies often lacks full understanding of our gender identities.

We exist in all different forms, shapes, sizes, ages, and ethnicities. We have various background, jobs, successes, traumas, and personalities.

Let us celebrate all that we are.

In fact, we grant you unapologetic permission to celebrate body positivity with us! The world could use some more of that.
