Call for Transgender Active Duty, Reservists, and Veterans for DC Photoshoot with Cassidy DuHon

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.”

Contact Cassidy directly via e-mail at

Karen Kendra Holmes: Community-Minded Entrepreneur

Karen Kendra Holmes leads a busy life so I was thrilled she could squeeze in time for a photo-shoot with me for The Platform Magazine, which will be featuring her in an upcoming issue dedicated to women. In addition to her work as a full-time federal employee, Karen serves as a soldier in the Maryland Defense Force and started her own business Safety First DMV, which provides CPR and first-aid training throughout the DC Metro Area. Dedicated to LGBT equality, she serves as a board member for PFLAG DC Metro and served on the board of Equality Maryland. Karen’s fun-loving spirit and positive outlook on life came through in her photo-shoot where we took head-shots for the magazine and some fun photos just because we could.

Join me at the 18th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner!

Show off your finest evening gown while representing the transgender and allied community at this fundraising dinner for Human Rights Campaign, a leading LGBT advocacy and equal-rights group based in DC. I’ve attended the past two years and absolutely loved the diversity of guests, the speaker lineup, and the pageantry of the evening.

Last year, a mid-20s transgender woman, Sarah McBride, stole the show when she shared her story of publicly coming out while serving as the student body president at American University. Until then, Sarah had presented as her gender assigned at birth, male. Sarah now advocates for LGBT equality full-time at the Center for American Progress. Check out HRC’s website,, to learn about their victories and continued work for equality.

This year, I’ve signed up a table captain with a goal to fill 12 seats at my table, and I would love to have you join us. This dinner is the largest single event to raise funds to support this LGBT-equality work. Tickets to the National Dinner usually sell out in the mid-summer, so please let me know as soon as possible if you’ll be able to join me. Tickets are $375 per person ($275 for active duty military) and you can purchase them through or by calling Box Office Tickets at 800-494-8497. Please make sure to select me, Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor, as your table captain during the check-out process either online or on the phone so we can all sit together.

Together we will make a difference in the lives of our friends, families, and communities.

To being fabulous!

Elizabeth Taylor

P.S. And don’t forget to arrive on-time at 5 p.m. for networking and showing off your gowns at the cocktail hour! Plan to stay for the official after-party sponsored by Abercrombie & Fitch. Any ideas for an after-after-party? 😉


Elizabeth (Beth) Taylor specializes in total makeovers, feminization, and photography for MtF crossdressers and transgender women and has transformed over 300 girls.
