Transgender Voices: Stories of Strength and Love

Watch the presentation online

What’s it like to be transgender? Is gender the same thing as sex? What’s up with all the pronouns?

Award-winning photojournalist Sal Skog will share stories in words and pictures to celebrate the extraordinary lives of transgender people. Sal has interviewed and photographed more than 100 transgender people in five states, and their engaging and deeply moving personal stories illuminate not only what it means to be transgender, but what it means to be human. Sal will be joined by representatives from the trans community to help answer questions.

Sal has more than 30 years of experience as a professional photographer, with a degree in photojournalism from the University of Minnesota. Her work has appeared in magazines such as Mpls. St. Paul, Entrepreneur, Sports Illustrated, and others; as well as in newspapers in Minnesota, Washington, and Montana. Some of her corporate clients included The St. Paul Companies, Northwest Airlines, Medtronic, and Ecolab.
