Behind the Scenes of Broadly's Gender-Inclusive Stock Photo Shoot

From the set of the Gender Spectrum Collection, photographer Zackary Drucker and models involved in the shoot discuss why transgender and non-binary representation matters.

The Gender Spectrum Collection is a free stock photo library of over 180 images of trans and non-binary models posed in everyday situations. This collection aims to help media better represent members of these communities as people not necessarily defined by their gender identities—people with careers, relationships, talents, passions, and home lives.

In this behind-the-scenes video, the Gender Spectrum Collection's photographer, Zackary Drucker, and some of the models featured in the project describe their relationships to how they've seen transgender and non-binary people depicted in the past, how cis people can be more inclusive in the images they choose to accompany their work, and what they hope this project communicates to other transgender and non-binary people about their positions in the world.
