Launch photoboek ‘Transfair’

‘Iedereen mag er zijn – Iedereen mag bekeken worden’
‘Everyone is beautiful, everyone has the right to be there’

The presentation of the photo book “Transfair” and Pete Statham’s performance will take place on Thursday, July 28th, from 6 to 8 pm.

Simona, the Italian former wrestler is transgender, and with her height and eccentric looks a striking appearance within the Amsterdam nightlife.
“I’ve had success in music and sports,” she says openly, “and enjoy being the centre of attention. There are people who are made to live in peace, and people who were born for the jet set lifestyle.”
The photo series ‘We all care…..Transfair’ by photographer Monique Shaw and art director Spekko on Amsterdam’s Simona is now bundled in the book ‘Transfair’. The phenomenal pictures create a living work of art of Simona, from which the viewer cannot take their eyes off.
During the Amsterdam Gay Pride / EuroPride 2016, in the presence of Simona, the first copy of ‘Transfair’ will be presented to Irene Hemelaar, director LGBTI-emancipation, from ‘Stichting Amsterdam Gay Pride’.
“I hope the way I express myself will encourage others to continue to fight for what they desire and want to achieve in their lives. After a long struggle, I am glad to be able to present myself as a strong woman”.
The limited edition photo book is for sale in the GO Gallery.

Pete Statham, former singer of Bearforce I will be singing his new single this evening, as a preview of his new album.
