We recently collaborated with fashion photographer Terna Iwar on a visual story about Nigerian boys who wear dresses. With this story, we tried to capture the solitariness that boys who cross-dress experience from our society: their lives, empty of any sense of community or belonging—neither here nor there —as they continue their journey to self-acceptance and discovery in the face of enormous hate.
