The Day with Friends photo shoot draws inspiration from a Brazilian transgender umbrella group which requests all affiliated association to include time and money in their work to create simple enjoyment-oriented spaces for transgender people. This can be going to the movies or having ice cream; the goal is to be out during the day, to feel strong in a group and face spaces believed to be 'off limits.'
OUTLOOK followed Brazilian transwomen through a day of food, fashion and fun. Together they met for coffee, spent time in a park and visited the Museum of Modern Art.
