You Are You documents an annual weekend summer camp for gendernonconforming children and their families. This camp offers a temporary safe haven where children can freely express their interpretations of gender alongside their parents and siblings without feeling the need to look over their shoulders. Through these images the viewer will experience an important moment in history where the first gender variant childhood is being openly expressed with the support of friends and family. Morris reaches beyond the confines of the camp to contribute to a dialog about the crucial role that support plays in the lives of
gender unique children.
Lindsay Morris’ work has been published in the New York Times Magazine (cover story), GEO Germany and GEO International, among others.
