DC photographer, Cassidy DuHon, is shooting a photo series to highlight the importance of open inclusion of transgender service members in the US military. Under current regulations, Active Duty and Reserve military personnel can lose their jobs simply for identifying as transgender. Cassidy wants to help change that. His series will feature the contrast between trans people in their service uniforms and the attire they feel most comfortable in. The series will highlight and humanize the political and social issues faced by the trans community.
After hearing rave reviews from friends and clients whom he photographed, I finally met Cassidy last week and had the pleasure to watch him shoot one of my clients after her makeup makeover. I was impressed with his knowledge of the trans community, his desire to make a difference, and how he put my client at ease. He agreed to share a sneak peek of his photo series in the below gallery.
Cassidy Duhon’s Model Call for Transgender Active Duty, Reservists, and Veterans:
I’m interested in trans models of any gender who are willing to be photographed in a dressed up or “evening” look, as well as photographed in the military uniform, medals, or insignia of their choice. Styling is up to you. A standard photo release is required. All shoots need to take place on the same roof in Shaw, DC to give the photos a consistent look. While the photos will feature your identity visually, no personal information will be attached to the photos. The shoot only takes an hour or two.”
