Trump gets the Ax treatment in Rochester street art

If you were out and about last weekend, you might have noticed Donald Trump on his knees, wearing bondage gear and a ball-gag, leaning against various city street signs.

Photo essay gives face and voice to gender spectrum

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.
