Bradd Addison Young's surreal summer

Tomorrow is the last opportunity to catch "Faux Été" ("Fake Summer"), the solo show of Rochester-based artist Bradd Addison Young currently hosted at The Yards.

Though transgender and non-binary identities have deep roots in human history, we still grapple with allowing people to pursue their authentic selves, and understanding them as a valid part of the spectrum of humanity. Photographer Errol Daniels' important photo series "TransAmericans" is currently on view at the Gay Alliance's Gallery Q. Through intimate portraits of trans and non-binary individuals, the show positions daily life — work, home, and relationships — as an entry point for relating to people with various gender identities.

Faux-doc ‘Fritz’ examines what success means as an artist
