Art Exhibit:

University of Michigan's "My Right Self" Transgender issues and rights are particularly relevant to contemporary questions of social justice and human rights as they inherently invoke conversations on sex, gender, sexuality, behavior, and sociopolitical hierarchies of power, which affect all aspects of society. These images (and accompanying text) are meant to confront and dispel myths and misperceptions around marginalized and disenfranchised communities. Art Lounge, Michigan Union, Ann Arbor.
