(Top photo: A photograph from Trans Swimming Session, including Kai, aged 10. Everyone in the photo is trans and extremely happy to be swimming without judgment from the general public.)

Fox Fisher is an artist, filmmaker and trans campaigner who's spent the past five years filming My Genderation, a series of films about trans people, by trans people. He also shot portraits of some of the people he's interviewed, and as today is the International Transgender Day of Visibility he shared some of those photographs with us.

Scroll down to see the photos, and check the My Genderation YouTube page to keep up with the films.
