Espavo Gallery Exhibit – NSAC 2015

September 2, 2015 - September 3, 2015

The Espavo Gallery will be displayed at the National Sexual Assault Conference, September 2-3, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Espavo, means “Thank you for taking your power back.” The Espavo Project is a photographic and narrative project developed by FORGE and designed to increase personal healing and empowerment for trans, gender non-conforming (GNC) individuals, and loved ones who have experienced sexual violence. We contracted photographers from all over the country to recruit volunteers (who represent the spectrum of trans as well as non-trans identities) to have their photos taken and to choose resiliency quotes that inspire healing.  Together, the photos and resiliency quotes create a gallery of inspiration for survivors of sexual violence who identify as trans, GNC and loved ones and shows how survivors can “take their power back.”


Please visit our display located in the exhibit hall near FORGE’s table and follow our Espavo Project on Instagram (@FORGE_forward) or visit out online gallery of images (http://forge.zenfolio.com).
