How a sanctuary for self-expression can change lives

Reed J. Williams and Lindsay Morris

After bringing her son to a summer camp for gender-nonconforming children, photographer Lindsay Morris launched a project to share the campers' stories with the world. One of them, Reed J. Williams, is now a powerful advocate for transgender youth. Together, Morris and Williams reveal two sides to the LGBTQ+ experience one as a mother, one as a trans woman and offer insight into the power of community.
