FORGE is hosting another photoshoot, this time in Richmond, VA and we’d love to have you join us!

The goal of the photoshoot is to:

  • honor and uplift trans/nonbinary community members,
  • add a bit of #TransJoy into your life,
  • contribute to photos that FORGE can use in affirming trainings to add true representation,
  • provide you with a set of images that you can share with your friends, post online, use as a new headshot for jobs or anything else you’d like to use the photos for!

We’ll be doing a free photoshoot on Sunday, October 8th from 11a-4p EST. We’re asking for people to sign up by Wednesday, October 4th. We have some VISA gift cards to acknowledge participation or to help with transportation.
