My Unlikely Connection With The Woman Revolutionizing The Conversation Around Being Transgender.


Female self portrait artist has her most challenging series struck from platform before it doubled down on the value of the male-gaze.

Photographer, Gabrielle Steberis, in white tank top and jeans with a black belt wears her red hair in spacebuns in a series of narrow framed self-portraits.

My name is Pixie, Pip, Pippa, Pippy, Kitty…I go by many names. And then there is my secret one that I reserve for the “bad” bits. The negative, intrusive, impulsive, restrictive and tiring bits. It’s not another personality, she is me just…at my most extreme. Itis unrecognisable as me, entirely pro-social when socializing; completely anti-social when pissed off. Itis stronger than I will ever be alone, It is faster than I could ever be without it and it is part of who I am. This is the name I give to my Borderline Personality Disorder. You can meet her later.
